Islamic Centre Project

Help serve 10,000+ Muslims by establishing the 1st Islamic Centre in the Neighbourhood

Project Overview

Churchill Meadows, Lisgar and Erin Mills West neighbourhoods have one of the most dense and diverse population of Muslims and yet not a single Islamic Centre in the area. After a great deal of persistence and hardwork over the past years, we have gained a unique opportunity to acquire land for our future Islamic Centre!

Masjid

A close-by dedicated and sustainable space for daily Salaah, Jumu'ah, Ramadhaan, and 'Eid

Education

Equipped with an Islamic School that will provide and further quality academic education

Community

Services and facilities for the entire family including social and recreational spaces for Youth, Women, and our Seniors

Institution

Promoting inter-faith dialogue, tackling Islamophobia, and serving local initiatives to build a safer and stronger community together

Please support the project generously

Phase I - Latest Update

We are fairly close to getting the building permit inshaa-Allaah. The team is ready to respond to the latest round of comments from the City as soon as we receive them to get to the building phase.

Fund Raising Need for December 2017

To ensure that we are able to start work as soon as permits and approvals are received, we need to raise $250,000 urgently. The key expenses coming up over the next few weeks include:

  • Development charges to be paid to the City : $400,000
  • Site servicing for both Phase 1 and Phase 2 : $320,000
  • Land Payment Installment : $183,000

Taking into account the money we have, we are short by $250,000, please donate generously to make up this shortage.
