PM, Aga Khan open Ismaili centre | Toronto Sun

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Aga Khan were in Toronto Friday at the foundation ceremony for the Ismaili Centre and the Aga Khan Museum and Park

The Ismaili Centre will be a gathering place for prayer and a space for intellectual discourse while the museum will be an education project of the Aga Khan Development Network, which will gather, preserve and display artefacts symbolizing the heritage of Muslim civilizations.

The two centres will be joined by a park and are expected to be completed by 2013.

“Canada is honoured to have been chosen as the site for these important institutions,” Harper said.
