Soon after their arrival, Mawlana Hazar Imam, Princess Zahra and Prince Aly Muhammad visited the Global Centre for Pluralism, and were given a tour of the building by John McNee, Secretary General of the Centre.

Situated at 330 Sussex Drive, the new permanent headquarters of the Global Centre for Pluralism is a heritage building that served as the Public Archives of Canada between 1905–67 and as the Canadian War Museum from 1967–2005. The facility underwent a significant transformation before reopening its doors in January of this year.

The opening ceremony will be streamed live at the websites of the Global Centre for Pluralism, the Aga Khan Development Network and the Globe and Mail. The webcast is due to start at 10:30 AM EDT (Ottawa time).
