Ismaili means followers of the faith. The Ismaili community is one of Alberta's important Muslim communities. Ismailis speak many different languages. Those who came to Canada and Alberta from African countries speak Urdu, Gujarati, Hindi, and English. For many Ismaili people, no matter where they go, they keep important traditional values such as the importance of marriage and family life.

The arrival of the Ismaili community in Alberta is an incredible story. They have used Education and language as a passport to gain entry and success in other countries.
It is estimated that nearly 20,000 Ismailis live in Alberta. The Ismaili community has created a number of organizations and institutions to support the community and to educate younger generations in the understandings of the community. Many of these organizations are led by volunteers under the guidance of His Highness Prince Aga Khan Shia Imami Ismaili Council of Canada.
