About Our Charity
The Islamic Humanitarian Service was founded in 1984 to help educate members of society about Islam, the fastest growing faith in North America. Stereotypes in the news and media were portraying a negative image of the culture and traditions of Muslims. One of the primary goals for starting the IHS was to explain the faith, which means peace and submission to the Almighty Lord, to the public. The Service was subsequently registered with the Federal Government of Canada as a charitable organization. Financial statements and yearly reports are submitted to Revenue Canada, the government ministry responsible for non-Profit entities.
