Our Theme for 2019
With all the challenges we face, we ask Allah (swt) to enable us to persevere and be steadfast. In this journey, we are not left alone, we have guidance from Allah on how to persevere, a recipe if adopted, would yield great results by the grace of Allah.
This is The Art of Perseverance

What Does ILEAD Stand For?
The aim of the conference is to engage, empower and support the Muslim community to work together and actively participate in building a vibrant community and a greater Canada while maintaining a Muslim Identity. The ILEAD conference was created and is run by the United Muslim Organizations of Ottawa - Gatineau (UMO-OG). It is an initiative that acts as a coordinating group for the 12 prominent Islamic organizations in the National Capital Region.
While each member organization is operated independently, the UMO facilitates important collaboration in areas such as education, social services, charitable works, public relations and large community events such as the ILEAD conference. ILEAD stands for Islam, Learn, Engage, Achieve, and Develop.
