As you know, we have limited parking spots, so, for the convenience and safety of all members attending the program, please park appropriately. Be careful while parking in the street, most of the parking slots are subject to Sector sticker pass. Also, please be mindful not to block our neighbors parking. For the safety of our elders and children and to avoid being ticketed, please do not park in the dropping zone in front of our center. Also, do not block any of the parking entry as your vehicle could be towed. If you see that you are blocking someone, please put your cell phone number on your dashboard. Your car should be moved as soon as the Majlis is over so those who want to leave earlier can do so. If you need to leave early, please do not park in the middle of the lot. Please cooperate with the volunteers in car park and provide them your cell phone number so that they can contact you if needed.


Saturday, August 27th from 10AM to 4:00PM, is our fourth Muharram blood drive in the name of Imam Hussain (AS). Those who want to donate and did not give their names yet, please email at your name, phone number, gender, age, as well as the statement, "I certify that I have read and understood the eligibility criteria". If you have any questions about eligibility to donate due to travel outside Canada, medications or medical conditions, we invite you to call 1-800-343-7264 to speak to a Héma-Québec nurse.

Let's ensure to work together, to act in an appropriate manner that would make our Imam (AS) proud. Below is a friendly reminder of some guidelines that all attendees should follow:
No men are allowed beyond the lady’s door or downstairs during the programs.
Parents are requested to ensure that their children are inside during the programs. Mothers with babies and young children can contact any BOL member in case they need any assistance.
Please do not speak or recite loud outside, on the streets or in the parking lot. Be mindfull of our neighbors and tenants upstairs.
Please keep our Center clean, both, inside and out, including the parking lot. This can easily be achieved by not littering, by picking up our own plates and cups and by not spitting pan or tobacco outside.
