Who is this group open to?
Our organization is primarily open to Muslims who want to have a better understanding of Canadian politics and those who want to be actively engaged in the political process. We are not affiliated with any political party or religious organization. The Canadian-Muslim Vote is also open to Canadians who want to raise their awareness of the issues that are of interest to the Muslim community.
Does The Canadian-Muslim Vote have a religious agenda?

We hope to leverage the wide audience and network of religious leaders to spread the core message of The Canadian-Muslim Vote: be engaged and vote!
Who funds this group?
The Canadian-Muslim Vote is a non-profit, grassroots organization and relies on the support of the public.
What issues does it intend on championing?
The Canadian-Muslim Vote aims to educate and empower the broader Muslim community to participate in the Canadian political process.

However, our main focus at this point is increasing Canadian Muslim participation in the democratic process.
Are you affiliated with any international organizations?
