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, which opened in 2014, in Toronto, Canada, is dedicated to presenting an overview of the artistic, intellectual and scientific contributions that Muslim civilizations have made to world heritage.
