Support Mosques to Assist in Muslim Integration in Canada
Date: May 2010
Author: Katherine Bullock, PhD
Based on an oral history project of Toronto’s first mosque, which existed from 1961 to 1968, this Tessellate Institute policy brief contains seven recommendations that all orders of Canadian government provide material and non-material support to mosque associations for their non-religious activities designed to assist in immigrant integration. The policy brief recommends that Canadian government agencies, while recognizing the importance of government neutrality with respect to the separation of Church and State, nonetheless, play a visionary role by promoting mosques as ideal sites both for incorporating their congregants into the fabric of Canadian society, as well as for providing services for the wider Canadian society.Download
