30 MORE | Sunday May 8 2022 : The History of Muslims in Toronto Jane’s Walk


Following an Islamophobia incident in North York in late 2015, HïMY SYeD led “The History of Muslims in Toronto – A Special December Jane’s Walk” a few days before Christmas.

It was well attended; much was learned, much was understood.

That very long walk was intended as a never-to-be-repeated event.

Yet Islamophobia persists… Quebec City Mosque Attack, and then Etobicoke, and then London.

This Jane’s Walk explains how 3rd, 4th, & 5th Generation Muslim Torontonians helped build our city.

This Jane’s Walk will visit four locations in The Junction and High Park neighbourhoods to reveal that history.

Walk stop locations:

  • The little known history of The Albanian Muslim Society of Toronto – The pivotal role of its founder, Reggie Assim
  • The Dundas Street Mosque – The City’s First masjid
  • Toronto’s FIRST Halal Butcher Shop – Roncesvalles Village
  • Jami Mosque – Toronto’s Second Islamic Centre and its national significance

TIME: Sunday May 8 2022 – 4:00 p.m.

MEETING POINT: Annette Street at Runnymede Avenue, Sidewalk on South West Corner of intersection.

WALK LEADER: Holding Orange “Walk With Us” Jane’s Walk sign; wearing a Green Square🟩

NEAREST PUBLIC TRANSIT: Runnymede Bus stop at Annette Street

WALK END LOCATION: Jami Mosque, 56 Boustead Avenue

Please help get the word and as important…

…Join This Special Jane’s Walk!

See YOU on Sunday May 8 2022, and Thank You!

​As part of the Green Square Campaign🟩, Green Squares (with safety pins) will be available for all who wish to wear one during this Jane’s Walk.
