We see outreach & public engagement as important responsibilities. For this reason, we have built positive relationships with churches and other faith communities in our area and across the city. We joined hands with a church to sponsor and support a Syrian refugee family and held a joint bazaar with another church last year and a joint dinner this year. We also have positive working relationships with other faith leaders and elected officials from all political parties.

Media engagement is something we also take very seriously. Our Imam often represents our organization and the Muslim community in local and national media interviews on radio, television and online.

Our new centre & masjid will enable us to hold more activities and events with other faith groups, invite our neighbours in and engage with the media in a more ways, inshaa Allah.

After offering Eid al-Fitr prayers on Sunday, June 25, 2017, about 40 community members joined our Caravan of Joy to pay surprise visits to seven local churches to offer thanks for their support in recent months, alhamdulillah. A tray of baklava, accompanied by a letter, was presented to each church. The visits were very well-received.

 

This year on Family Day, we held a thank you event for the general public at a local skating rink to thank the community for the outpouring of support following the Quebec City mosque shooting.
