By the grace of Allah (swt), the founders of MAC were already active in local and national organizations. However, in the late 1990s there was a shared sense among those individual activists that something was still missing. There was a need to bridge the gap and help Canadian Muslims relate and contribute to their communities in a healthy and positive way.
Ergo the establishment of “The Islamic Information Center”, opening its doors to everyone on November 1st, 1995. Two years later, in 1997, the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) was established. Shortly after the Vancouver Chapter was formed. (See History)
The MAC Vancouver Chapter is run by a Chapter Committee.
