CANADIAN COUNCIL OF MUSLIM WOMEN
Our membership base has expanded. Our current members are
Nusrat Jalil - President
Nasreen Ijaz - Vice President
Robina Surtie - Secretary
Qudsia Qayyum - Treasurer
Our Chapter is a very small group but we try to do as much as our limited resources and
our busy schedules will allow us to do. Our chapter is trying to get youth involvement as
they are the future and should be prepared to take the leadership of the organization. We
have been successful in our efforts to some extent; our youth members are involved with
Muslim Youth Canada project and reports to Rizwan Mohammed, Project Coordinator.
With regards to our activities this past year
We donated $320 for women's shelter to the Xmas Cheer fund. This is an
initiative by Reginas local newspaper, The Leader Post.
One of the goals of CCMW Regina Chapter is to liaison with other
organizations and women groups. Regina Chapter is a member of Regina
Multi Faith Group. We try to attend their monthly meeting, whenever, we
could. Three members of CCMW attended their annual dinner/general
body meeting in January/11. It was a well attended dinner by various faith
groups and Lt. Governor of Saskatchewan Dr. Barnhart was the guest
Islamic Association of Regina hosted an Eid get together for the
Community at large and invited dignitaries like Mr. Ralph Goodale, MP,
provincial ministers, media people, different faith groups and members of
Regina police. CCMW was part of the event and helped with the food
In December, Nusrat Jalil, president of the Regina chapter hosted a social
supper night out for members of Regina chapter. The members enjoyed
socializing, played games and had lots of fun. One of the members talked
about her work with domestic violence.
The Regina chapter implemented a scholarship program in 2004. Our
initial investment with the University of Regina was to end within 5 years.
In 2007 we extended the duration of the scholarship to 2012. CCMW
Regina hopes to extend this scholarship indefinitely- Insha Allah. This
years scholarship was awarded to a Muslim girl entering the University.
