I am very pleased to be here for the Foundation Ceremony for the Aga Khan Museum.

“Your Highness, on behalf of the Government and people of Canada, and especially Torontonians, I want to thank you and the Aga Khan Development Network for choosing Toronto as the site for the Museum. Like the beautiful Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat you built in Ottawa, the Museum and the gorgeous formal gardens and Ismaili Centre that are to accompany it promise to be another stunning addition to Canada’s growing array of architectural treasures.
