Islam in Canada

My project is about being a Muslim in Canada. It emphasis's the culture and where we go to pray (mosque)




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

There are terrible misconceptions about muslims that are not true. We are a peaceful religion and really are influenced by the people who are not muslim.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

The most interesting thing I learned doing my project was there are a lot of terrible misconceptions about Muslims that are not true.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

At one time Muslims were not able to vote in Canada. They were not allowed to be in government, or be police officers. Today muslims can do everything and much more.
