Hussaini Canadian Educational & Cultural Association of Edmonton was founded and registered in 2009 as a non-profit religious organization. At present, our association is comprised of more than 50 families, who have their roots in South Asia. In order to accommodate our growing Shia population and for the purpose of advancement of our religious activities, HCECA of Edmonton acquired the current location at 330 66 Street Edmonton in September of 2009.
To educate our youth with the religion of Islam, Al-Murtaza Sunday School was also established in October 2009.
