Somali Canadian Facts:
Different provinces have different dialects but they can all understand each other (Arabic is widely used because of the Islamic religion. English, French and Italian are also used) Almost 100 per cent of the Somalis are Sunni Muslim.

On December 11th, 2006 CFS prepared another conference in order to refocus the distinguished guests, and the general public about the nation of Somalia. CFS wanted to address the challenges the Somalis face within their nation.

The conference discussed the following issues:
  • Opportunities and Challenges of NGO's and IGO's in Fragile States,
  • Conflict Prevention and Resolution, Somali Women in War
  • Peacemaking, Religion and Peace-building,
  • Innocence Lost: The Effects of War on Children,
  • Role of Diaspora Community in Reconciliation\Reconstruction efforts,
  • Role of Media in War-making and Peace-keeping
The objective of the conference was not only to spread awareness but also make powerful and unforgettable changes that can allow Somalis to become more stabilized.
