On 24 October 2016, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad was visited by Bonnie Crombie, the Mayor of Mississauga at the Baitul Islam Mosque in Peace Village, Canada.

During the meeting the Mayor welcomed His Holiness to Canada and spoke of her admiration at the way Ahmadi Muslims had successfully integrated into Canada. She also thanked His Holiness for the continued charitable endeavours of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Canada, including providing large contributions to local food banks in Mississauga.

Upon learning that youth unemployment levels in Mississauga were significant, His Holiness said that schemes should be developed to provide jobs and skills to young members of society.

His Holiness said that he considered youth unemployment to be a security issue as economic hardship was a trigger for crime and radicalisation.

The Mayor asked His Holiness about his recent travels. In response, His Holiness informed that during the past three months he had attended the Annual Convention (Jalsa Salana) of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in the United Kingdom, Germany and most recently in Mississauga where the 40th Jalsa Salana Canada was held.

  1. Alhamdo Lillah. By the grace of God Almighty the respect and the honour of the Jamaat of the Promised Messiah Alaihissalam is growing by the day. Its not surprising to see the growing panic among the opponents of the Jamaat e Ahmadiyya. Members of Jamaat e Ahmadiyya are the followers of the Messiah of the Holy Prophet Mohammad Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
