About MAC London
The MAC London Chapter is one of 13 different Chapters of the Muslim Association of Canada and it was started in 2001 by a group of young sisters and brothers. Many of these sisters and brother were active members of Muslim Students Associations in their education and Chapter allowed these brothers and sisters continue work focused on youth. Initially, the group of sisters and brothers would meet to plan activities at the London Muslim Mosque, Western University campus, and each others’ homes, till they eventually were able to purchase the MAC Youth Centre. The Chapter has grown substantially since then with involvement of many more people, Centre locations, and services provided to the London community.
