Welcome to the NSICC

In Halifax, specifically in Bedford and Clayton Park area, the Muslim population has grown rapidly during the last decade and is expected to grow even faster in the coming years. The Muslim community in these areas were always concerned about performing their religious duties. In January 1990, to fulfill the demand, some Muslim brothers and sisters contributed generously to purchase a piece of land (22 acres) located between Hammonds Plains and Kearney Lake Roads.  In the same year, in September, the city of Halifax granted rezoning for the Masjid and Nova Scotia Islamic Community Center (NSICC). The community was also able to build a prayer hall and residence for the Imam

NSICC is the only Association in Halifax that has 22 acres of land for Masjid and Community Centre and 8 acres for Muslim Cemetery. This association has a governing body of elected members that look after all affairs of the Association, Masjid, Cemetery and the Muslim community of the surrounding areas. Also, NSICC is serves as a community Center. The Center is committed to preserving an Islamic identity, building and supporting a viable Muslim community, promoting a comprehensive Islamic way of life based on the Holy Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.
