The Ismaili Centre in Burnaby, a tree-lined suburb of Greater Vancouver, is the first such centre to be purpose-built by the Ismaili Muslim community in Canada.
Access to the building is gained through a courtyard garden, which is enhanced by fountains, trees and flowers. Inside, a prayer hall provides facilities for communal services and quiet contemplation. The facility also includes a social hall, administrative offices, council chamber and classrooms for religious instruction.(extracted from The Ismaili)
