MUSLIMS IN SASKATCHEWAN
Muslims arrived in Saskatchewan at the end of the 19th century. Most of them came from Lebanon and settled as farmers in southwestern Saskatchewan, around Swift Current. A significant number of Muslims also arrived in Saskatchewan in the 1960s; they came from Asia and the Middle East, mainly from countries with a large Muslim population. more>>
