About MAC Convention 24
MAC Convention 2024 will take place from Saturday, May 18 to Monday, May 20 in Toronto, Canada.
MAC Convention 2024 brings scholars, activists, intellectuals, and community builders from around the world into one unique event that invites you to think critically and be inspired to imagine and engage in meaningful action to impact positive changes around you. This event is for the whole family, with a full-children’s program; youth program; and multiple lectures, workshops and networking sessions for the whole community.
MAC Convention is back this year with the theme “Seizing the Moment: Standing Firm on the Path of Truth.” We, as a diverse, multi-dimensional community will participate in critical conversations on how Islam presents real, authentic, and much needed complete solutions for every aspect of our lives.
We invite you to learn and grow with us as we discuss Seizing the Moment: Standing Firm in the Path of Truth.
The Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) is a Canadian, independent, national, faith-based, charitable organization, that provides spaces, services and programs for holistic education and personal development for Canadian Muslims.
