Islamic Heritage Month

Monday, September 27, 2021

The month of October is Islamic Heritage Month in Canada.

Established by the Canadian Government in 2007, Islamic Heritage Month provides an opportunity to learn and honour the rich history of Islam, and contributions of Muslims in Canada. It is important to recognize the diversity that exists within the faith of Islam, and the folks who practice it including the multitude of people, stories, and cultures that have shaped, and continue to shape Canada.

This Islamic Heritage Month, we honour and celebrate the significant contributions made by Muslims within the University of Waterloo community, and beyond.

We encourage University of Waterloo students, faculty and staff  to take time to explore this non-exhaustive list of the many events, supports, resources, communities, and educational tools:
