The History of Muslims in Toronto


Sunday May 8




Language: English 

Area: Downtown

Theme: History & Culture, Diversity & Inclusion

Following an Islamophobia incident in North York in late 2015, HïMY SYeD led "The History of Muslims in Toronto – A Special December Jane’s Walk" a few days before Christmas.


It was well attended; much was learned, much was understood. That very long walk was intended as a never-to-be-repeated event. Yet Islamophobia persists... Quebec City Mosque Attack, and then Etobicoke, and then London.


This Jane's Walk explains how 3rd, 4th, & 5th Generation Muslim Torontonians helped build our city.

As part of the Green Square Campaign, Green Squares (with safety pins) will available for all who wish to wear one during this Jane's Walk.

  • Walk Start Location: Annette Street at Runnymede Avenue, Sidewalk on South West Corner of intersection. Walk leader will be holding Orange "Walk With Us" Jane's Walk sign; wearing a Green Square

  • Nearest Public Transit: Runnymede Bus stop at Annette Street

  • Walk End Location: Jami Mosque, 56 Boustead Avenue
