Islamic History Month Canada (IHMC) in October aims to celebrate, inform, educate, and share with fellow Canadians the rich Muslim heritage and contributions to society: contributions in sciences, humanities, medicine, astronomy, and other disciplines that have greatly benefited human progress.
IHMC believes that through education and sharing positive stories, all Canadians can grow and connect in the best way possible.
In 2007, IHMC was graciously proclaimed by the honourable and departed, Mauril Belanger, MP, for Ottawa-Vanier. Since then IHMC has been proclaimed in provinces and municipalities across Canada and community members and organizations have hosted countless events every year bringing communities together to share and learn from one another.
The IHMC Theme for 2023 is: Celebrating Muslim Women in the Arts & Sciences - honoring the historical contributions of Muslim women through the ages and in Canada their influence on the progress of the Arts, Sciences, and Society.
Let us celebrate IHMC with enthusiasm and share the rich contributions of Muslim women who have and continue to contribute to the betterment of Humanity.
Recognizing and honouring our women will inspire and empower Muslim youth and defeat negative stereotypes of gendered Islamophobia.
