Islamic Foundation of Toronto
Also known as the Nugget Mosque, this is one of the largest and most active masajid in the GTA. The Islamic Foundation of Toronto is one of the oldest Muslim organizations in Canada. It was established in 1969, when an old 3000 square foot building, with no parking space, was purchased at Rhodes Avenue and converted into a mosque. The 2.3 acres land, where the Islamic Center currently stands, was purchased in 1984. It was a giant leap towards the vision of an institution beyond a neighborhood mosque - a center that would provide quality programs in areas of religion, education and social services for the Muslims of Greater Toronto and bring them closer.
