Ramadan Mubarak

The Islamic month of Ramadan has begun. Ramadan is a month of fasting, prayer and other acts for devotion for Muslims. Ramadan Kareem!

In 2022 Ramadan began on April 1st and will end on May 1st. Like many other religious and cultural calendars, the Islamic year is based on a lunar calendar and that is way dates vary from year to year on the Gregorian (solar) Calander.

We wish Ramadan Mubarak and Ramadan Kareem to the more than one million Canadians who follow Islam, and to our Muslim neighbours around the world.
