Important message about the COVID-19 Coronavirus

In an effort to care for all of our personnel, families, and mission around the world, EMI has been taking a number of steps in response to the progress of COVID-19.

Location-specific Crisis Management Teams remain in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. Decisions about official EMI travel (including project travel) domestically and internationally are being made on a case-by-case basis by Office Directors in locations concerned. EMI’s worldwide offices remain in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home.

We continue to actively monitor the situation and will respond to new information affecting our worldwide ministry and teams. We view the COVID-19 Coronavirus as an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

Step Locally, Impact Globally :: The EMI Canada Walk/Run 4 Hope

**Team EMI members have now completed their walks and runs. Donations can still be accepted until July 14. Click here to support Team EMI.


Join us this June as we walk, run, and fundraise in support of EMI Canada's work to design a world of hope! 


Have you ever considered the hope we find in places? Think of the mother with a sick child, finding hope in a medical clinic. Think of the impoverished senior citizen, finding hope in a care facility. Think of the girl rescued out of human trafficking, finding hope in a recovery home.

So often, we take these places of hope for granted; places that, in some contexts, just aren't available or accessible.

This is why EMI exists - to bring hope through design, so that more people around the world have access to these places of hope. Empowered by a network of supporters like you, we work with local ministry partners around the globe to deliver professional design services in the name of Christ.

The EMI Canada Walk/Run 4 Hope is one of our key annual fundraisers, and you can be a part of it. Click here to learn more and sign up as a walker or runner today.


Want to join us?

We're excited to invite our friends across Canada to join us in the second annual EMI Canada Walk/Run 4 Hope, one of EMI Canada's key annual fundraisers. Our virtual format means that you can be a part of it, wherever you are!

What's a virtual walk/run?

It's a walk or run that you complete on your own or in a small group that respects your local physical distancing guidelines. You are free to choose how far you walk or run, and you're free to choose where you walk or run. Team EMI participants will complete their walk or run anytime in the month of June, no later than June 30.

When you join Team EMI, you'll be encouraged to fundraise for EMI Canada.

Who can take part?

Anyone, anywhere is welcome to join Team EMI and walk/run wherever you are!  You're free to choose the length of your walk or run, so there's something for everyone at every fitness level. Consider this an opportunity to get out for your favorite scenic stroll OR set and achieve a personal fitness goal while partnering with EMI Canada!

What does it cost to join?

We're glad to say that it's free to register!
All participants will be encouraged to fundraise for EMI Canada. Those fundraising $150 or more will receive this all-new, custom EMI Canada t-shirt!

What does my fundraising support?

When you walk or run with Team EMI, every dollar you fundraise will go to the EMI Fund, which lays the groundwork for all that EMI does to equip and mobilize design professionals as they serve ministries and transform lives around the globe.  Visit our project portfolio to see the impact your fundraising can have.

Not a walker or runner, but still want to support EMI Canada? You can sponsor Team EMI runners and walkers by clicking here.
