Established in 1969, the Islamic Foundation of Toronto (IFT) is one of the oldest Muslim organizations in Canada. It began as a 3000 sq. ft. building at Rhodes Avenue initially which was later transformed into the towering institution that it is today. The Center can be easily reached by car and public transportation and is open for the five daily prayers. Nearly 2000 worshippers make up the Friday congregation for the Jumuah prayer.
Our full-time school employs a highly-qualified staff and boasts a burgeoning student population of over 600 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. The evening and weekend Islamic schools count over 400 students as their pupils. Our educational services are further augmented with the implementation of a full-time Hifz School along with evening Hifz classes.
For our adult members, we host daily programs ranging from Arabic to Fiqh classes. We recognize the need to supplement education with healthy recreational outlets for our youth. It is with this mindset that we host sports tournaments as well as drop-in sports for both brothers and sisters. We understand that a holistic approach is necessary to cater to our congregation and beyond. This is why we are heavily active in collaborating with other Muslim organizations in organizing programs that cater to our community’s diverse needs.
