Residents of the City of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories, Canada can visit our Masjid in Yellowknife located at 4100 Franklin Avenue Yellowknife, Northwest Territories Canada X1A 2B7; to offer five-time prayers in congregation. Our Masjid speaks to the region’s cultural diversity and is a gathering place for Muslims of different origins.
From our humble beginning with only a few families in 1992, the local Muslim community has now grown to about 300 people. Keeping in view the growing Muslim population, we are in need of a new building for the Islamic Centre.
The Muslim Community of Yellowknife is in an urgent need of a new Islamic Centre complex. The current building of the Masjid has limited space and is a very old structure built-in 1967. Due to the uneven settlement of the ground, it is extremely hard to keep the building in proper shape.
Our goal is to build the new Islamic Centre, which will be primarily a place of worship, Islamic education and outreach centre (dawah), along with a place for a family get-together and social events. The new facility will be designed to represent an Islamic look as well as being coherent with surrounding civic spirits and to have enough area to meet parking requirements. The Muslim Community of Yellowknife is looking forward to completing this project as early as possible with the support from all funding contributors.
