One Ummah Conference - February 17, 2019


The Annual One Ummah Conference (meaning ‘One Nation’) is a yearly event hosted by the Islamic Information Society of Calgary promoting the motto: “Change Yourself – Change the World.”

Our motto comes from the Quranic verse: “…. Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves….” (13:11).

The purpose of this conference is to create a community of positive change and growth. We provide our attendees with enlightening talks from world-renowned speakers on topics relevant to the current needs of the Muslim community.

We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming conference.
