By the grace of Allah (s.w.t.), on November 5th 2019, we received acceptance of the new Al Mahdi Islamic Community Center’s Site Plan drawings from the City of Toronto. This was the most difficult hurdle to overcome and it is the first of the two-stage Site Plan approval process required for our new buildingconstruction project.
In December 2019, we received the next key document, the Notice of Approval Conditions (NOAC) from the City’s Senior Planner. The NOAC outlines the pre-approval conditions to be met in order to begin construction. Alhamdulillah, we are pleased to share that we have met all pre-approval conditions and we have submitted the required documents to the City on January 22nd 2020. We have also submitted the Building Permit Application and are expecting to receive its approval in the next four to six weeks, Inshallah.
During the coming weeks, we will be releasing tender documents to contractors, and plan on having a contractor signed during March 2020.
Inshallah our target is to break ground and begin construction on April 10th 2020 / Shaban 15th.
We will continue to share regular updates. Please continue to keep this noble project in your duas. Thank you for your support and patience with us throughout this process.
