Bridge of Understanding

The Reviving
the Islamic Spirit
convention was first launched eighteen years ago by
Muslim youth to tackle the backlash on Islam and Muslims after the 9/11 and to
build a bridge of understanding with non-Muslims.

The event has become a staple in Toronto’s downtown core
during the Christmas holiday season and an estimated 20,000 attendees are
expected from all over North America and around the world, adding a boost to
the local economy.

Canada is one of the world’s most ethnically diverse and
multicultural nations with a population of 35 million.
