Islamic Social Service Association (ISSA) is a non-profit registered charity dedicated to working for the general welfare of society and for Muslim Canadians in particular.
ISSA provides a truly unique service to the Muslim community by addressing both psycho-social and systems related navigational assistance. ISSA advocates for our clients when involved with systems such as CFS, Immigration Services, Justice, EIA, Border Services, Manitoba Housing and the Manitoba Mental Health system.
Clients are often extremely relieved upon accessing ISSA’s services as they have gained a companion on their journey as well as a strong and informed advocate. These services are provided free of charge.
