October is Islamic Heritage Month. Today, there are over 1.1 million Muslims living in Canada (about 3.1% of the total population). Islam is second only Christianity in the number of Canadians who self-identify with a faith-tradition, and Muslims make up the fastest-growing religious community in Canada. Canadian Muslims are diverse – they come from South Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and sub-Saharan Africa, and speak many languages, including Arabic and Urdu.
