Several activities make November Moroccan Heritage Month in Toronto: recognition by the mayor of Toronto, celebration of the Green March and Independence, cooking workshop, fashion show, drawing competition, expert debate …
“All this had to be done in person, with the inauguration of our new community center, but obviously, because of the continuing pandemic, it will be done online,” says Faouzi Metouilli, president of the Moroccan Association of Toronto (AMDT).
A protocol raising of the Moroccan flag, at the pole of the esplanade of the city hall of Toronto, should however take place, in small committee, on Wednesday, November 18 at 12:30 pm. Mayor John Tory and Moroccan Ambassador to Canada Sourya Otmani are expected there.
The new “Moroccan Association Center of Toronto” is located at 1033 McNicoll Avenue, north of Finch and east of Victoria Park.
It is open by appointment and an employee is there a few hours a day. It is a basement that houses two offices and a conference, training and activity room that can accommodate around sixty people. “We hope to inaugurate it with great fanfare in 2021!” Faouzi Metouilli tells us.
