What is MAX Gala?

The Annual MAX Gala is an incredible night of celebration that represents the outstanding efforts of hundreds of volunteers across multiple different teams at MAX. With 4 renditions held so far, our MAX Galas are attended by multiple luminaries in Canadian politics, medicine, law, business, development, academia and the arts!

In doing so, the Gala recognizes the achievements and contributions of seasoned professionals, community leaders, and students – all of whom have made exemplary strides in academia, industry, community work, and professional fields, thereby breaking down prejudice and promoting diversity and respect. MAX Gala is a rare glimpse into the talents and cultural strengths of a dynamic community of patriotic Canadian Muslims, whose continued efforts help energize the economy and expand our combined cultural horizons.

What have we achieved so far?
“I want to congratulate everyone being honoured tonight. Thank you for the positive contributions you make to Canadian society each and every day … Tonight is a testament to the fact that diversity is our greatest strength.” – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
