Morrocan French Canadian Aicha Lasfar grew up in Gatineau but recently moved to Calgary, Alberta. In Ottawa-Gatineau, Lasfar made a name for herself as an avid blogger and vlogger exploring parenting and the Muslim Canadian experience.
Muslim Link interviewed Lasfar about her experiences on social media and her latest blog Canadian Mooselim.
The Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW) launched a publicly funded initiative in March 2014 that aims to “build resiliency” within communities.
Overseen by Ottawa-resident Stephane Pressault, Project Communitas will equip youth with “the introductory skills for community building and community activism” in order to develop “resilient communities with strong leaders.”
