Introduction / History

In Canada there are a large number of Somalis. At the end of the last century many Somalis came to Canada, the situation in Somalia causing many to leave. Some of them came from the United States.

In Toronto where many Somalis live, they have found it hard to get work even though some are qualified. Language problems have been one cause of this. The Canadian government, along with Somali organizations in Canada, are helping young Somalis with work experience, training and other schemes to find work.

Some Somalis have gone back to Somalia with the improvement in the security situation there. The Somali Canadians have helped a lot in the rebuilding of Somalia.

In addition to Toronto, many Somalis live in Ottawa while some live in Edmonton and other places. Islam is the religion of the Somalis. The Somalis in Canada speak Somali, English and French.

There are Somali organizations in Canada to help Somalis here. The Canadian Somali Congress works with national and local authorities.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God will give Somalis dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that Canadian Christians will help lead the Somalis here to Salvation too.
