Kanata Muslim Association (KMA) is a not-for-profit, federally-registered charity serving Muslims and representing Islam in Ottawa West.
For the last decade, we’ve been renting facilities such as community centres, churches and schools for prayers, events and evening & weekend schools. A small rental mosalla is available for daily prayers and limited gatherings.
With Allah’s help, we’ve tried our best to organize Friday & Taraweeh prayers, run schools for children, organize youth programs, host social events, do outreach, engage with the media, offer family support & spiritual counsel and more – all without a permanent home. We’re at our seventh Friday prayer rental location now and currently have activities happening at four different rental locations.
Alhamdulillah, we’re incredibly blessed to have a diverse community, where men, women and children of various ethnic backgrounds and ages participate actively in community events, programs and initiatives. We are bonded together by faith and humanity, with respect and appreciation for individual and cultural differences.
