Convention Main Program

As we find ourselves in a post-covid world, and as a community of diverse Canadian Muslims entering a new phase of Canadian identity,  the convention main program will provide invigorating sessions and dynamic conversations around how to understand and live Islam to collectively thrive in the tath of Allah(swt).  It is through the deep understanding, reflection, and application of the unique Islamic worldview that we as a community will rise above the many challenges, distractions, and conflicting narratives that surround us, and emerge on the path of clarity, steadfastness, engagement, excellence, and success.  

The convention program aims to delve deeper into the theme – collectively as Canadian Muslims through every aspect of ‘Tareeq Al-Istiqamah’. ​Learn about some of the most pressing issues facing Muslim in Canada today, and gain inspiration from powerful speeches aimed at encouraging you to live Islam fully in all areas of your life.  

Parallel Streams & Programs

MAC Convention 2022 will feature streams that cover topics through a comprehensive grasp of research and community realities, and an understanding that is grounded within the Islamic framework.  These parallel streams will focus on young professionals, family matters, social justice and civic engagement, Ummah issues, dawah, and some scholarly sessions in Arabic.  Get answers to questions you might have on a variety of topics from religion to current events and listen to some of the most contemporary scholars of our time. You will leave with an understanding of the latest issues, trends and research impacting Muslims in  Canada and a deeper understanding of how you can be an agent of impact within the wider discourse. These smaller lectures are offered in a more intimate setting and are aimed at young professionals and adults.
