Wow! I am planning to visit Canada with my extended family including one surviving sibling beside my eldest brother in London a sister in Calgary very soon, with Toronto as a final goal. My host Nadira has put this beautiful campus with Jamatkhana, Museum and now Park on the list as Must See. Thank you for this information but I won’t be there until early June and will miss MHI’s inauguration of the beautiful Aga Khan Park. I share the joy with Canadian Jamat for their good fortune, Ameen.

The announcement also noted that arrangements are underway to webcast the event live as well as telecast the opening ceremonies at Jamatkhanas across the country.
