October is Islamic Heritage Month. The Government of Canada first declared the month of October as Canadian Islamic History Month in 2007. In 2016, Ontario passed the Islamic Heritage Month Act to recognize, celebrate and affirm the significant contributions that Muslims continue to make as part of the vibrant social, economic, political and cultural fabric of this province.
This year’s Islamic Heritage Month theme is Imagining Muslim Futures. Students, families, community members, and staff of all identities are invited to join the Alliance of Educators for Muslim Students (AEMS) at the Islamic Heritage Month Launch at Pierre Elliott Trudeau High School on Thursday, October 12, 2023 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. There will be speakers, workshops and various student activities.
