Community Resources

The NCCM has produced a number of guides designed to help Muslim Canadians know their rights, and understand how to put them into action in different settings. Many of our guides are also aimed at informing both Muslim and non-Muslim community members about how to navigate issues relating to Muslims and Islam in the workplace, at school, during times of trauma, and more.

These guides are free to download below.

NCCM Muslim Student Townhall Report Muslim students rarely get the opportunity to speak freely about the particular challenges they face in the education system.

This report aims to highlight their perspectives, and serves as an important resource for educators seeking to understand the needs of their diverse students. Please subscribe to download
