In The Name Of Allah The Most Merciful
Located just east of High Park in Toronto, Jami Mosque (مسجد جامع) is the oldest Canadian Islamic center in the city and dubbed “The mother of all the mosques in Toronto”.
When the Muslim Society of Toronto (MST) opened its Islamic Centre in 1961, it served a tiny community. The earliest presence of Muslims in Canada was recorded in the 1871 federal census, when 13 people recorded Islam as their faith.
Built in 1910 as a Presbyterian church, the building was purchased in 1969 by Toronto’s small, predominantly Balkan, Muslim community and converted into the city’s first worship center.
We thank you for your generous support in the past and seek your support to keep this house of Allah continue to operate efficiently to provide services to the community.
