The Lives We Impact

“As a mother of three young children, it has been very comforting and appeasing to know that I can get a challenging level of workout while my children are either within eye sight to me and/or next to exercising at their pace"

Joumana Abseh , (MY Centre user)

“Having the opportunity to contribute to get MY Centre on its feet for the sake of Allah is a great blessing” 

Ahmed, (MY Centre Volunteer)

Our Vision

The Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) believes that Muslims deserve institutions that provide a welcoming and safe space and offer social, recreational, educational and spiritual programs for our families. Our institutions are inclusive of all people irrespective of faith, race, ethnicity or gender.


The MY Centre will provide participants with recreational, educational and spiritual services that will, in turn contribute to better grades, increased self- confidence, healthier life-choices, and better opportunities throughout their lives.


MAC Youth (MY) Centre programs focus on developing leadership and social skills, as well as enhancing spiritual and intellectual contribution to the community.

With the primary focus geared

towards the youth, ages 13-24, MY Centre aims to bring together youth from

various cultural backgrounds.
