It is noted that the building of the mosque and the minaret was built in four thousand kilometers from Inuvik and taken to a place in parts.
The mosque was built on the initiative of the local Muslim community, which consists mostly of Sunnis, who have migrated to Canada from Egypt, Lebanon and Sudan. The building will also be used as an Islamic cultural center.
The mosque is open to believers in the next week after recent renovations.
