On January 29, 2017, six worshippers were killed during the evening prayer at the Islamic Cultural Centre in Quebec City:  Azzeddine Soufiane, Mamadou Tanou Barry, Khaled Belkacemi, Aboubaker Thabti, Ibrahima Barry and Abdelkrim Hassane. Many others were injured in the attack.

The OFL signed on to an open letter calling on the government to declare Jan 29 a Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia. To read the letter click here.

To commemorate the first anniversary of this tragic attack, communities across Canada are hosting vigils to remember the victims and stand in solidarity with the community.
