AKDN IN

Canada
For more than 25 years, the AKDN has been present in Canada, with the Aga Khan Foundation Canada established in 1980. Since then, AKDN has partnered with the Canadian government on numerous initiatives, including the Global Centre for Pluralism in Ottawa. In 2015, His Highness the Aga Khan became the first faith leader to address a joint session of the Canadian Parliament, and a new Protocol of Understanding was signed between the Canadian government and the Ismaili Imamat, which amongst other things, established a permanent diplomatic representation for the AKDN.
