Why address Islamophobia?Toronto man exhibiting Islamophobia and harassment towards a Muslim Canadian woman. On the left is a profile of a man with a speech bubble saying ‘Go back to where you came from.’ On the right is a photo of a woman in a hijab with a speech bubble that says ‘where, north york?’. OCASI (Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants) logo is centered below the copy.

Toronto is one of the most diverse and welcoming places in the world, but some Muslims still experience harassment. We partnered with the Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI) to remind us all that Toronto belongs to everyone – and that Muslims are as much a part of the fabric of our city as any other group of people. Everyone who lives here deserves the benefit of the inclusiveness and support that has made our city envious to the rest of the world.
