Islamic Heritage Month
Every year for the month of October, Islamic Heritage Month is recognized in Canada.
Islamic Heritage Month provides an opportunity for all citizens to learn about the history and culture of Ontarians of Muslim heritage who have made an impact in our communities across the province, as well as to appreciate the significant contributions made by the Islamic community. 

This celebration of Muslim history, culture and religion will be a time for all of us to reflect, celebrate and learn about these contributions together.

This year’s Islamic Heritage Month poster pays homage to the contributions of Muslim visionaries who have propelled humanity forward. From the bravery of WWII hero, Noor Inayat Khan, to the grace and agility of Muhammad Ali. From the timeless and much instagrammed wisdom of Jalaluddin Rumi, to the "Queen of the Curve" architectural genius Zaha Hadid, to the contemporary winning spirit of Ibtihaj Muhammad, from famous explorers like Zheng He to game changing champions like Mohamed Salah, the Muslim world has produced scholars, thinkers, athletes, explorers, architects, artists and thought-leaders across several fields. Through their strength of character, light of faith and perseverance in the face of adversity, these pioneers have forever changed the face of their game and respective industries. Join us as we celebrate these exceptional luminaries and let their light inspire us to shine a little brighter, stand a little taller and to harness our talents.
