This is a list of mosques in Canada. It lists mosques (Arabic: Masjid, French: Mosquée) and Islamic centres in Canada, North America. It lists some but by no means all of the mosques in Canada.

Not all Muslim houses of prayer are mosques, with Nizari Ismaili Jama'at Khanas, of which there are over 90 in Canada including a major Ismaili Centre in both Toronto and Vancouver.
