Mission &

Our mission is to serve God through the teachings of His Messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the Holy Qur’an by uniting Canadian Muslim physicians and to help serve the healthcare needs and concerns of Canadians.  MMAC aims to provide unique professional, educational and social services not only to its constituents, but also to the general public, ultimately contributing to the development of healthier Canadians.

Our vision is to build a team of Muslim physicians who are driven to combine their Islamic values and professional skills with the intent to contribute to the betterment of their communities, society and humanity on a regional, national and international level.
