The Islamic Social Services Association (ISSA) is building bridges, breaking barriers and facilitating access. Through our various publications, public seminars, diversity training, newspaper and journal articles, public and private policy work and personal counselling, ISSA dedicates itself to addressing the needs of Muslims across Canada. One of the most critical components of this task is ensuring that accurate messaging and information on Islam and Muslims is available and accessible.

In addition to dealing with Muslim issues within our community, Islamic Social Services Association collaborates with other social service, cultural and interfaith organizations in order to address human rights issues and build bridges to unite the citizens of Canada.

‘At the Heart of Human Rights is Human Dignity’ conference held on March 21 and 22 which was partially funded by Canadian Heritage, Citizen Equity Committee, Multicultural Secretariat, Sargent Blue Jeans and the Winnipeg Foundation was a wonderful success! In case you missed it or were a participant and want to experience it all over again: you can view it at At the Heart of Human Rights is Human Dignity Conference
