Who was the first Ahmadi in Canada?
In Canada, the first known Ahmadi to visit the country was in 1923, Mr. Karam Din.
Many more Ahmadi’s followed, many of whom came from Pakistan while facing persecution. In 1974 and again in 1984, there was a lot of persecution due to the Pakistan Government legislations, which resulted in a lot of Ahmadi’s coming to Canada. In 1966, the Community was officially registered in Canada as the “Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam (Ont) Inc.” The first missionary who was assigned to Canada was Maulana Syed Mansoor Bashir Sahib.
