EMI is a network of Christian design professionals who impact communities through developing people, designing structures, and constructing facilities. These facilities - hospitals, orphanages, schools, clean water projects, and more - serve communities and the church by meeting physical needs and communicating God’s love in a practical way.
The core of EMI Canada’s work is our design projects. In 2021, we began serving ministries in Canada for the first time, completing needs assessments for ministries in BC and Alberta. Overall, our office worked on nine (9) different projects in eight (8) different countries in the sectors of housing, healthcare, hospitality, education & training, and church ministry.
Mobilizing professionals around the world
EMI Canada mobilizes full-time, faith-supported staff with various professional design backgrounds to work from our office in Calgary, Alberta, as well as other EMI offices around the world. These staff members recruit and lead design professional volunteers and interns in short-term mission teams to countries where professional-level design is unavailable or inaccessible.
The map below indicates where full-time EMI Canada staff, as well as our engineering and architecture interns from Canadian universities, served in 2020.

An 'Advancing in Faith' Story
That's what Dallas Derksen, Director of Prairie Aviation Training Centre, said as he described how working with EMI has helped advance an important capital project in Three Hills, Alberta.
Prairie Aviation Training Centre (PATC), managed by Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) Canada, exists to train Christian aviation professionals who will go on to serve the Kingdom of God through aviation. PATC has outgrown their current facilities and envisions an expanded campus that will serve a growing number of students pursuing aviation-related roles in the air (pilots) and on the ground (engineers).
In the fall of 2021, EMI Canada sent a small team to Three Hills to learn about PATC's program, assess current facilities, and capture PATC's vision for the future. EMI Canada delivered a needs assessment that provided several options for an expanded campus.
Watch the video below to learn about PATC's exciting program, their bold vision for the future, and how EMI has come alongside:
EMI is anticipating continuing to serve PATC and MAF as they advance this exciting project. And EMI Canada is looking forward to serving other ministry clients operating on Canadian soil. God is doing great things right here in Canada, and EMI Canada seeks to partner with organizations on their capital projects - projects that change lives and advance God's Kingdom.
