The United Muslim Organizations of Ottawa-Gatineau (UMO-OG) is a consortium of 13 prominent Islamic organizations that strives to reflect and act upon the needs and views of the community. The member associations are the Assalam Mosque & Ottawa Islamic Centre, the Assunnah Muslims Association, Centre Islamique de l’Outaouais/The Outaouais Islamic Centre, the Islam Care Centre, the Islamic Society of Cumberland, the Islamic Society of Gloucester, the Islamic Society of Sandy Hill – Masjid Taqwa, Jami Omar – Jamiatul Muslemeen of Ottawa Carleton, the Kanata Muslim Association, the Mosque of Aylmer, the Muslim Association of Canada (Ottawa Chapter), the Ottawa Muslim Association – Ottawa Masjid, and the South Nepean Muslim Community.
The UMO-OG has been in operation under different names since 2009. While each member organization operates independently, the UMO-OG facilitates important collaboration in areas such as education, social services, charitable works, public relations, large community events and response to major crisis situations.
The UMO-OG prides itself on fostering necessary collaboration between Islamic organizations, community service providers, various faith groups and government agencies. The work of the UMO-OG reflects its priorities as Muslim communities contribute time and resources to help make Ottawa and Gatineau the great place that it is.
