About HDM

Hamilton Downtown Mosque is a vibrant Canadian religious non-for profit institution that started operation in 1992 and was established as a charity on March 5th, 1997. It is offering a variety of essential services to more than 10,000 Canadian citizens and residents of the Muslim community in the central Hamilton area. This institution, and due to its strategic location in the heart of downtown Hamilton, has been playing a great role in enhancing the level of safety and security and enriching the quality of social life in downtown core.


The role of the mosque is to give community members a haven where they can

 attain knowledge, increase in spirituality, receive resources and social services, and connect with others building bonds of fellowship.


As a tenet of our Islamic Faith, we inherently support the individual in striving to be an honourable Canadian citizen contributing to one’s society with good actions and words.   Therefore it is one of the main objectives of the Mosque to help the community as a whole in overcoming struggles to achieve a healthy, safe, and progressive neighborhood that we can all be proud of.
