Islamic History Month Canada aims at celebrating Muslim contributions to civilization, old and new, encouraging Muslim integration in Canadian society, and inspiring dialogue and introspection among all groups in Canada through a range of events such as a multicultural exhibition, public lectures, panel discussions, film showings at Ottawa Public libraries, and other complementary activities.
