For the last 13 years, the Ottawa Islamic School has been the only Islamic high school in the Eastern Ontario/Western Quebec region. It produces the future leaders of our society with a balanced understanding and application of Islam. Seven former students have been or still are teachers at the school. Here’s a great opportunity for you to be part of our school and leave a Sadaqa Jariyah.

The Ottawa Islamic School expansion project:

  • Adds 300 more spots for students to the existing 410 spots. These students were turned away over the years for lack of space. With your support, you can help make space for them.
  • Adds 9 more classes.
  • Will be right beside the current location of the school (10 Coral Ave.) taking up an area of 870 square meters and two stories high.
  • Adds the following facilities for students:
    • An Olympic sized gymnasium
    • Two change rooms beside the gym ( one for boys and one for girls)
    • Nine classrooms
    • A giant science laboratory
    • Two big washrooms with ablution (wud’u) facilities
    • Two mechanical rooms
    • A kitchenette
    • Two staff rooms
  • Is expected to be completed by August 2014 just in time for the academic year 2014/2015
  • Currently has $1.3 million and is fundraising for two remaining installments, each worth $250,000.

The new facility would allow us to do sports activities that we couldn't do before. And we would be able to participate in leagues that need standard sized gymasiums, something we never had before. We would also have a giant science lab!
