Currently there are almost 1.5 million Muslims in Canada, with about 87,500 more arriving each year. It’s predicted that within 15 years the Muslim Population in Canada will be about 3 million.*

 *Stats Canada 2011 National Household Survey and 2011 Pew Forum

In light of all that’s happening in the world related to Islam and Muslims coming to Canada, how are you, your church, your denomination preparing to be at the forefront of engaging Muslims in Canada?

Join us for the 2016 National Conference consisting of the National Dialogue, AL MASSIRA training, and Together2016.

 

An African proverb says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” The challenge and opportunity of Muslim immigration will not be answered by a simplistic response. Join the conversation, respond to the call... Let’s go far together.
