This past long weekend the Muslim Association of Canada held its convention at the Enercare Centre in Toronto. It was a well-attended and very organized event featuring well-known Muslim Scholars and Community Leaders as guest speakers as well as local artists featured in an art exhibition.
There was something for every age group. The childrens program area had plenty of games, activities and some entertainment to keep kids busy while parents and youth could attend a variety of talks from critical thinking to leadership, being productive to media and Muslims as well as self-care.
There were community engagement activities like networking, art workshops, live painting and film viewings. For the shopaholics, there were many vendors with everything from books, to beautiful hijabs to food. It was nice to see many important community organizations like Sakeenah Homes, Naseeha, Deen Support Services and Nisa Homes at the booths to share their work with the community.
