By this way we will connect with Allah’s creation and enjoy with spiritual focus the natural beauty that surrounds us. Other activities include hiking and canoeing.

— Good news for the Muslim Community from the Ottawa Muslim Cemetery The land for a cemetery is purchased and completely paid for. The city of Ottawa approval has been obtained. All of the required environmental and geological issues has been resolved. And Now the Ottawa Muslim Cemetery has obtained the last set of approval. That is, a license from the Province of Ontario to operate a cemetery. We would like to thank all those who helped to make this possible. The Muslim cemetery can be operational by the fall of this year provided that funding can be obtained to complete the work on the land. The land for the cemetery is located in the south end of the city about 25 minutes from the main mosque.

The only obstacle keeping the Muslim community to have its own independent cemetery is the funding to complete the project. The project now requires your generous support to build the infrastructure such as a road on the land, landscaping, and a small utility building.

You can help by donating and/or by making an advance payment on a plot. If each Muslim family makes an advance for one plot there will be sufficient funds to complete the final stage of the project. Stay tuned for further announcements on fundraising events for the cemetery.

You can contact the Ottawa Muslim Cemetery at 613-723-5911 or at
