2024 Nominee

Qadija Yusuf

As-salāmu Alaykum Wa-raḥmatu-llāhi Wa-barakātuh. My name is Qadija Yusuf and I have been a part of the ISNA Community for over ten years. Alhamduallah I have had the opportunity to serve as a board member from 2021 to 2024. I work as a Forensic Analytical Toxicologist at the Centre of Forensic Sciences. I completed my undergraduate degree in Forensic Chemistry at the University of Toronto – Mississauga and a Masters of Science in Chemistry at York University.


Over the years, I have been involved with various programs and initiatives at ISNA Canada. My interests are in Islamic education and youth initiatives. Previously, I have volunteered with the ISNA weekend school, Ramadan program, ISNA Convention and ISNA Foodbank.

During my term on the board, I have learned about governance and the various board
operations at ISNA. I have taken trainings to increase my knowledge of non profit
governance and to better equip myself with the necessary skill sets to serve the organization effectively. I aspire to serve and support the ISNA community, membership and organization.
