The Islamic Shia Ithna'asheri Association of Edmonton (ISIA) is the first mosque built in Edmonton in 1982 for followers of the Shia Ja'aferi faith, more commonly known as the Twelver sect, the largest sect of Shia Islam. Since its opening, religious functions are held on a regular basis with a fully functional Sunday school operating from the premises. Programs are held in English, with lectures every Thursday night at minimum. The centre is actively engaged in interfaith dialogue through its outreach committee, fostering relationships between Muslim communities and building bridges with the various other religious organizations.  

Shia Ismaili Muslim Community

The Shia Ismaili Muslims represent an ethnically and culturally diverse community that has become well-established in this country over the past 50 years.  United in their allegiance to their 49th hereditary Imam (spiritual leader), His Highness the Aga Khan, Ismailis have arrived in Canada from a number of regions, including parts of Africa, South and Central Asia, and Europe.  The Ismaili Muslim community is deeply committed and active in contributing to the communities in which they live, with a strong focus on improving quality of life.
