Ottawa, 5 November 2015 — Canada’s newly sworn-in Prime Minister, the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, visited the Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat on Tuesday evening, where he met with Malik Talib, President of the Ismaili Council for Canada and Dr Mahmoud Eboo, Resident Representative of the Aga Khan Development Network in Canada.

The Prime Minister conveyed his deep admiration for Mawlana Hazar Imam, the Ismaili community in Canada and the global work of the AKDN.

President Talib and Dr Eboo congratulated the Prime Minister on behalf of Mawlana Hazar Imam and the Jamat. The three discussed areas of collaboration between the Government of Canada and the Ismaili Imamat.

“Canada is a valued partner of the Ismaili Imamat and has been home to a significant community of Shia Ismaili Muslims for several decades,” says Dr Eboo. President Talib adds that “the Ismaili community looks forward to working closely with Prime Minister Trudeau’s new government in the months and years ahead.”
