His foundation has opened negotiations for a large facility on the 67-acre site, and may occupy as many as five buildings. They are mainly for students and educational facilities, but a museum of some kind has not been ruled out.
Officially opened in December 2008 by His Highness the Aga Khan and Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat is Ottawa’s newest architectural jewel.

The Delegation serves as the headquarters of Aga Khan Foundation Canada, a non-profit agency that supports social development projects in Asia and Africa.
