October is Islamic Heritage Month

Thursday, September 27, 2018
Categories: News Releases

Islamic Heritage Month Poster

The Government of Canada first established October as Islamic History Month (IHM) in 2007, recognizing, “the important contributions of Canadian Muslims to Canadian society, the cultural diversity of the Canadian Muslim community, and the importance of Canadians learning about each other to foster greater social cohesion.” On 22 June 2016, TDSB Trustees voted to designate the month of October as Islamic Heritage Month (IHM). The following autumn, “Reflect. Celebrate. Learn.” was chosen as the theme of our inaugural IHM 2017.

This year, the TDSB’s theme for IHM 2018 is, “Our Journey Continues...” We encourage all members of the TDSB community to join us in continuing to learn about the heritage and history, culture and ongoing contributions of our Muslim fellow-Canadians. A variety of IHM 2018 events and learning activities are planned throughout the month of October for students and staff across TDSB.

Please join us for a free screening of the CBC documentary 14 & Muslim, followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers. This special Islamic Heritage Month presentation will take place on Monday, 15 October 2018 at 7:00 pm, at the Isabel Bader Theatre, 93 Charles Street West, Toronto. Please visit www.14andmuslim.com to learn more about the film and watch the trailer. On-line registration is available on Eventbrite, but space is limited, so please be sure to register early.

See the TDSB IHM 2018 Resource Guidebook and IHM 2018 Poster.
