Friday May 24 marked a special occasion for the Regina, Prairies and Canadian Jamats. The inauguration of the new Regina Jamatkhana was attended by distinguished guests and Jamati leadership. Her Worship Mayor Sandra Masters graced the occasion, joined by MLA for Regina Pasqua Muhammad Fiaz and Ward 2 City Councillor Bob Hawkins. Dr. Jeff Keshen, President of the University of Regina, and several other civil society leaders were also present.

Mayor Masters, in her address, spoke about the Ismaili community's 50-year history in Canada. She highlighted the Proclamation made by the City of Regina in September 2022, which celebrated this important milestone. Mayor Masters commended the Ismaili community for its contributions to the city, including food drives for the Regina Food Bank during Ramadan, organizing park clean-ups, and hosting blood drives with Canadian Blood Services.

Her Worship emphasized that the new Regina Jamatkhana "is more than just the opening of a building; it represents the enduring presence and continued commitment of the Ismaili community to our city." Her heartfelt words highlighted the Jamatkhana's role as a symbol of the Ismaili community's ongoing dedication and service to Regina.

The inauguration of the Regina Jamatkhana is a testament to the strength and unity of the Ismaili community, celebrating its heritage and contributions while looking forward to a future of continued engagement and service within the broader society.
