Columbus Community Centre Prince George Chapter

The city of Prince George is located approximately 750 km north of Vancouver and 700 km south of the Yukon/Alaska Border. The population in Prince George is currently estimated at 80,000. The Muslim population in Prince George is growing steadily due to the diversification of the local economy and an effective support network provided by the local Muslim community for the practice of Islam. The Prince George Chapter was initiated in June 1999 with the objectives to: Bring the Muslims of Prince George and surrounding area together and help them in their Practice of Islam Make Islam better understood by the Prince George and Northern BC communities Promote understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims In the early years, congregational prayers were offered in classrooms and Islamic classes offered in people houses. Since 2000, the Chapter has been looking at options for having a permanent facility for offering prayers and holding social and educational gatherings. At the end of the year 2000, a small room was rented in a local motel to offer Jumah prayers. Since 2002, weekly Islamic classes were held regularly in classrooms provided by the Immigrant and Multicultural Services Society. In 2003, the community decided to explore the possibility of purchasing land from the City of Prince George and build an Islamic centre. The Muslim Community presented its needs to the city council in two council meetings. In March 2004, the Prince George City Council approved the sale of a piece of land to our community An agreement with the City Administration was reached in late 2004. Since November 2004, the community has been renting space from a local Church to offer Jumah prayers. In March 2005, the Prince George City Council unanimously approved the rezoning of 3.8 acres of City land for the construction of an Islamic Centre. The final sale agreement was signed on April 21, 2006.
