Jane's Walk: The History of Muslims in Toronto

Jane's Walk: The History of Muslims in Toronto


Following an Islamophobia incident in North York in late 2015, HïMY SYeD led "The History of Muslims in Toronto – A Special December Jane’s Walk" a few days before Christmas.

It was well attended; much was learned, much was understood. That very long walk was intended as a never-to-be-repeated event. Yet Islamophobia persists... Quebec City Mosque Attack, and then Etobicoke, and then London.

This Jane's Walk explains how 3rd, 4th, & 5th Generation Muslim Torontonians helped build our city.​
