The Canadian Council of Imams is a collective leadership of Imams (Ministers of Religion) in Canada.
Established in 1990, the Council has been serving the Canadian Muslim communities throughout the nation in different capacities as well as acting as a unifying platform for Canadian Imams and chaplains.
In addition to being an important reference and a resource centre for Canadian Muslims, the Canadian governments and media, the council has been playing a leadership role especially after the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the ongoing Islamophobia, and its impact on Muslim minorities around the world.
Through its monthly meetings, press releases, seminars and conferences the council has succeeded in bringing most of the Imams together, unite them, and unite different communities on many issues.
The council has deliberated over various matters affecting the community and has been successful in providing solutions for many conflicts and challenges over the last twenty-six years. At the same time, the council has filled a vacuum with the different levels of Government and has been the principle liaison throughout the nation.
The Council does not endorse political parties or candidates, but we support each other in working for policies that both embody and actively foster love and caring, kindness and generosity, nonviolence, ethical and ecological sensitivity, and awe, wonder, and amazement at the grandeur of the universe.
