The mission of the non-profit Bilal Community and Family Centre (BCFC) is to support the social and economic advancement of Winnipeg’s immigrant and refugee populations.

Interviewed by members of Winnipeg’s Muslim community, Muhiadin Omar, Executive Director of BCFC, was invited to Civic Platform to talk more about their organization and their work with newcomers. BCFC provides services to the Winnipeg community, emphasizing immigrant and refugee newcomer families and youth.

“We offer regular seminars, weekend sessions, and a variety of drop-in programs to our approximately 600 newcomer youth and their families. With tremendous success, our centre has served as an open resource for members of the community and families to resolve disputes through various counselling services. Additionally, our centre has served as a link between local families and CFS [Children and Family Services],” said Omar.

BCFC offers comprehensive social services, including after-school programs, summer youth programs, English as a Second Language (ESL) lessons, family counselling, career coaching, seminars, and refugee orientation services. Omar added that their mission is to assist the people in the community in overcoming social obstacles by helping them navigate their surroundings and giving them the essential resources they require to thrive.

“Our community’s members are positively and concretely connected through BCFC.”
From his experience, Omar gave multiple pieces of advice and instructions during this episode to Muslim youth in Winnipeg. So they can avoid any difficulties the Muslims who arrived in Winnipeg went through before them. To avoid repeating the same mistakes and become a successful and influential person in Winnipeg.
