The Leaders’ International Forum (LIF) announced Friday that Mawlana Hazar Imam will visit Canada in November this year. In addition to presiding over the inaugural Global Centre for Pluralism (GCP) Award ceremony in Ottawa and attending meetings of the GCP Board, Mawlana Hazar Imam will meet with Eastern Canada Jamats in the jurisdictions of the Councils of Ontario, Ottawa, Quebec, and Maritime Provinces.

The announcement included the recommendation that large Jamati gatherings should be avoided during these Imamat visits and therefore, access will be restricted to the jurisdiction Jamats. Members from other parts of Canada and abroad are respectfully requested to refrain from travelling to Eastern Canada in the expectation of being able to participate. 

Mawlana Hazar Imam will continue to grant further visits to as many Jamats as possible during the Jubilee year. Mawlana Hazar Imam's Diamond Jubilee visit to Canada will be scheduled in 2018, at which time he will meet with the Jamats of Western Canada also.

The.Ismaili, the official website of the Ismaili Muslim community, will provide updates to the global Jamat before, during, and after these visits. To stay informed of all the latest news, follow us on social media (FacebookTwitterInstagramSnapchat) and sign up for email updates.
