About Ismaili Centre, Burnaby
Since its opening in 1985, the Ismaili Centre, Burnaby has hosted a wide range of events, opening its doors to government officials, prominent academics, leaders of many communities, and the wider public.
On a number of occasions, the Ismaili Centre provided a distinguished venue for the presentation of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, including the Gold level awards that were presented by His Royal Highness The Duke of York. The events presented award recipients and their families an opportunity to tour the Centre and dialogue with leaders of the Ismaili community.
Most recently, Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean, former Governor General of Canada, led some 200 British Columbian youth in a Truce Dialogue. The Dialogue was part of Canada’s expression of the Olympic Truce in the run-up to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games. The Ismaili Councils for Canada and British Columbia partnered with VANOC, the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, to host the Dialogue session.
