Welcome to Islamic Social Services Association
Building Bridges, Breaking Barriers, Facilitating Access
Islamic Social Services Association is very excited about the coming events in 2019! It is our 20th Anniversary Year!
This year started on a sad note. ISSA hosted a commemorative vigil on January 29th in honor of January 29, 2017, when 6 worshipers were killed & 19 injured in an act of hate at Quebec City Mosque.
On March 14 & 15 is the “Striving for Human Dignity: Race, Gender, Class and Religion: A Canadian Conversation” conference. To register please go to ISSA’s Event page for March or if paying by credit card go to CanadaHelps: Conference Registration . Many thanks to Canadian Heritage, Multicultural Secretariat and The Winnipeg Foundation for their support of this conference.
Islamic Social Services Association will be providing sector specific training throughout the year. A schedule will be available shortly.
ISSA’s excited and honored to be one of the recipients of The Winnipeg Foundation Reconciliation grant. We look forward to building bridges with the Indigenous community over the next two years.
This summer ISSA is hoping to once again offer the After School Summer Program to the community for a fun-filled, educational summer for the children!
ISSA’s 20th Anniversary Fundraising Dinner is on September when there will be a celebration of our 20th Anniversary and the 25th Anniversary of Alhijra School! More information will be posted closer to the date. We look forward to celebrating with you!
In October Islamic Social Services Association will once again celebrate Islamic History Month with the ever popular Multicultural Tea Fest.
