Mayor Crombie’s Statement on Imamat Day
“On behalf of the City of Mississauga and Members of Council, I join with our City’s Ismaili community to mark Imamat Day.
“Today is the anniversary of the accession of His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan IV as Imam of the Shia Ismaili Muslim community. As spiritual leader, His Highness has been an inspiration, having undertaken important work in humanitarian assistance, development, and the alleviation of poverty.
“Imamat Day is one of the many opportunities where we in Mississauga, and in communities across Canada, can celebrate the diverse cultures, faiths and shared values that flourish throughout our City.
“Once again, I extend my congratulations to High Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan IV and the entire Ismaili community on this auspicious occasion.
