Support Line for Muslim Women & Youth

Support Line for Muslim Women & Youth

Islamophobia Support Line


Funded by Canadian Heritage’s Anti-Racism Action Program, RIWC launced a new Anti-Islamophobia Support Line last fall to provide referral and counselling support for victims of religious, racial and culture-based violence. It is not meant to be a replacement for the Police Service. In an emergency, please call 911.

Our Support Line is a FREE, confidential and independent supportive counselling service for women and youth who self-identify as Muslim and have experienced hate crime incidences and need someone to talk to.

Our Peer Counsellors are trained volunteers who will help our callers demystify the reporting process, connect Muslim women and youth with community resources, and offer a safe space to connect with others in the community who are here to help.

If you recently experienced a hate crime incident, and would like to speak to someone from our team, please call us at 416-613-8729 (Mon-Thurs, 10 am-4 pm) or you can email us at [email protected].
