Several AKDN agencies and affiliates are active in Canada. One of the most prominent institutions is the Aga Khan Foundation, which has mobilised funds for development initiatives in Eastern Africa and South and Central Asia, notably through the annual World Partnership Walk.

The Global Centre for Pluralism, to be built in the former Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, will be a major new international centre for research, education and exchange about the values, practices and policies that underpin pluralist societies.

The Aga Khan Museum, to be built in Toronto, Canada, will be dedicated to the acquisition, preservation and display of artefacts - from various periods and geographies - relating to the intellectual, cultural, artistic and religious heritage of Islamic communities.
