Manitoba Islamic Association Presents... Town Hall Meeting:
Mobilizing Compassion: What we can do to help the Refugee crisis.
Who are they?
Why are Asylum Seekers here?
What can WE do to help Asylum Seekers?
Asylum Seeker: a person who has left their home country requesting sanctuary in another.
Women, men, children all crossing the border into Canadian cities and towns. Emerson, Manitoba is our local border crossing, this is where more than 200 asylum seekers to Canada have crossed. Crossing at night, walking for hours, trudging through snow, frigid farmers' fields, all with one goal in mind, to reach Canada.
Join us at the Grand Mosque for an evening of understanding. Hear from experts, grassroots leaders, and asylum seekers who have faced the unthinkable.
No background knowledge is required and all questions are welcomed.
Being Muslim, a practical Guide, is a class that will cover the essential aspects of Islam from the most basic level. Together, in a relaxed and friendly environment, we will cover a wide variety of subjects that will give learners not simply a collection of facts, but an understanding of the vision and spirit of Islam.
Topics include essential beliefs, religious practice, life of the Prophet, spirituality and character, and living as a Muslim in Canada.
Manitoba Islamic Association is over 40 years old and is the oldest Islamic organization in Manitoba.

Is it possible that the Legislative Building is really a conduit of magical power?
Is the building’s location in the centre of North America a site for numinous earth energies?
Come and find out for yourself!

A stellar list of comedians are getting ready to descend on our city this spring, including Will Sasso, Gavin Crawford, Howie Miller, Nikki Payne, and many more! Festival organizers also believe that buying local is a good habit, and that includes entertainment, too.
‘Buy Local’ also means different things on different levels, according to Artistic Director Lara Rae: “We want to showcase fine local talent, so you’ll see local talent not only in the Indigenous-focused Winnipeg Show, but also peppered throughout the festival – including our much-loved galas.”
Tommy Chong, known for his many comedic film roles over the years, will host the Good Neighbours gala on April 7 at Pantages Playhouse Theatre.
