The Canadian-Muslim Vote initiated it's first ever election readiness campaign on April 3rd, 2015 through a coordinated Good Friday Jummah sermon, encouraging Muslims to vote, in collaboration with over 20 mosques across the Greater Toronto Area. This momentum continued up to the 2018 Ontario Provincial Election where 44 mosques participated across the province.
In 2019, Good Friday Jummah is on April 19th which is the launch for our Federal Get Out The Vote Campaign! With the election just around the corner, we have a number of amazing volunteer roles coming up that we would love for you to sign up for.
