Social Services

Imam Mahdi Islamic Centre (IMIC) has social responsibility toward the community and committed to helping the community.
As we all know, the situation in Syrian is deteriorating and more and more refugees are seeking shelter outside of Syria. IMIC is working toward sponsoring two or three Syrian families, as well as helping government assisted refugees (GAR) in GTA.

IMIC is proud to have collaboration with its neighbour, the Jewish temple Har Zion, to bring and sponsor a Syrian refugee family with the next few months. We are hoping this project would be a starting point of more collaboration between Muslim and Jewish communities in Toronto, and eventually in Canada. This joint project is launched on March 6th, 7-9 pm, at Temple Har Zion (7360 Bayview Ave), and the guest Speaker is the Honorable John McCallum, Minister of Immigration, Citizenship & Refugees. All are welcome.
