First Mosque to be built in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia

A new mosque is being built in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, according to the administration of Halifax’s main Islamic Centre, the Ummah Masjid and Community Center.

“We are pleased to announce that we have an accepted offer to build the first mosque and community centre in the Valley,” said Ummah Masjid and Community Center. ”Alhmadulellah, the big success of the Antigonish Mosque and community Center was mainly because of the outpouring support that we received from the community. This is a long overdue project to serve the community in the valley, we are asking for your support to make this happen.”

“We aspire to make this project an attraction to more immigrants and newcomers to settle and give back to the greater community of the Valley.”

Wolfville is a town in the Annapolis Valley, Kings County, Nova Scotia, located about 100 kilometres (62 mi) northwest of the provincial capital, Halifax. The town is home to Acadia University.

At present, there is no mosque or prayer facility for the growing Muslim community in the whole Annapolis Valley. Located right next to the highway, the new mosque is envisioned to be a community hub for residents of Wolfville, Kentville, Berwick and all in the Annapolis Valley.

Having the Centre a few meters away from Acadia University makes the site ideal to support international students and faculty members. The current property is on 28,000 square ft of land for future community growth and has two upper levels with 6 rooms for student housing and a lower level kitchen area and a prayer space.

To complete the first phase of the project, the community needs to raise $ 350,000 before Feb 28th, 2022.
