Canadian Ismaili community surpasses pledge of 1 million service hours | Daily Hive Toronto

In September 2017, the Shia Ismaili Muslim community across the country pledged one million hours of service for Canada – and today, they announced that number has been surpassed, just six months later.

With the community’s commitment to improving the quality of life of all Canadians, the Ismaili CIVIC 150 initiative was born to commemorate both Canada’s 150th anniversary along with the Diamond Jubilee 60-year anniversary of His Highness the Aga Khan.

“Our community’s one million hours of service is a demonstration of Ismaili Muslims’ enduring commitment to Canada,” Malik Talib, President of the Ismaili Council for Canada, said in a statement. “Volunteerism and service to the broader community are both central to Ismaili and Canadian values, and the Ismaili CIVIC 150 initiative is a reflection of that.”

  1. Congratulations to all the Ismaili Muslims for achieving this goal sooner then expected, and hope they will continue to contribute as many hours as possible in future to enhance and interact with other communities to help all those less fortunate then others and also setting an excellent example of what The Aga Khan is doing for this cause, pluralism, philanthropy and much more.
