Dughmosh is facing a total of 21 charges, including attempted murder of at least three people for the benefit of or in association with a terrorist group.
Police said she allegedly tried to attack employees at a Canadian Tire store in east Toronto with a golf club and a large knife in June.
Dughmosh previously underwent a psychological assessment and was deemed fit to stand trial.
During a brief Toronto court appearance Friday, Dughmosh stood with her back to the judge and repeatedly interjected through an interpreter to call those in the court “infidels.”
