The Canadian Muslim Women's Institute (CMWI) has a new home - 61 JUNO ST.
The Canadian Muslim Women's Institute office has been located on the second floor of the mosque for two years, since it had to move from its previous location on McDermott. CMWI offers many important services to the community, including ones for newcomers. They run various programs including referral services, English classes, a food bank, a sewing program and swimming lessons. Although WCM is sorry to see CMWI leave, we are happy that they have found a larger, more functional space at 61 Juno St. May Allah (SW) bless CMWI's members, volunteers and employees and we wish them all the best in their new office space!
CMWI OPEN HOUSE:
FALL 2012 - DATE TBA

Successful Spring Clean-Up: Watch Video Here!
May Allah (SW) reward all those brothers and sisters who spent many hours last Saturday cleaning the inside and outside of the Masjid. Everyone worked hard and did an excellent job! It was a very productive day; people undertook many tasks including washing walls in all over the mosque, cleaning all the windows and doors, sorting out unused items and washing the kitchen, moving furniture, dusting light fixtures, wiping chairs and tables, vacuuming the carpet including the corners and edges, scouring the washrooms, sanitizing the wudu sandals and watering cans, shovelling soil into the garden planters, weeding, cutting grass, picking up garbage outside and planting flowers and seeds.
Special thanks to Robyn Webb, the Greening Coordinator at the Daniel McIntyre / St. Matthews Community Association, who came out to help us plant! Also, special thanks to Br. Sarowar Mian (Giant Pizza) who provided many pizzas for the hard working volunteers!
If we all work together, we can keep the Masjid clean. JazakAllahu Khaire!
