St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
Masjid-an-Noor is the first, and currently only, mosque in the city of St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The mosque is located in the provincial capital of St. John's, and was built in 1990 by the Muslim Association of Newfoundland and Labrador. A large proportion of the congregation are students or faculty at the Memorial University of Newfoundland.
It is the only mosque in the province. As such has been turned to for reaction to events involving Islam and mosques in the news, such as the March 2019 shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand. In Newfoundland, Masjid-an-Noor held memorial services. An event at St. John's Farmers Market was held to express support for Newfoundland Muslims; some came to the event after hearing of it on CBC News. Messages of support were also delivered to the mosque itself.
