Premier Kathleen Wynne will inaugurate the Aga Khan Park in the presence of His Highness the Aga Khan, founder and Chairman of the Aga Khan Development Network, and spiritual leader (Imam) of the Shia Ismaili Muslims, in Toronto on Monday, 25 May 2015.

The 6.8-hectare park, Toronto’s newest cultural hub, encompasses the Aga Khan Museum and the Ismaili Centre, both of which were inaugurated last September. All three projects are examples of distinctive, world-class architecture and design, offering a major cultural and architectural contribution to Toronto and Canada.
