The Aga Khan, spiritual leader to the world’s 15 million Ismaili Muslims, will pay a visit to Calgary this month.
The local stop on Nov. 24 — the Aga Khan’s first visit to Calgary in 16 years — will be part of a weeklong tour of Canada, marking his 50th year at the head of the global Ismaili community. Canada is the 14th country the Aga Khan will visit as part of the celebration, with other stops in Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver.
“We’ve been anticipating the possibility that he might come to Calgary, but to have it confirmed now is very exciting,” says Calgary Ismaili community member Sameera Sereda.
