Contract Negotiations Under Way with EPSB and CoE for the Easement Agreement

One of the conditions of the Development Permit we received from the City of Edmonton was to sign an Easement Agreement with the Edmonton Public School Board so that TCS can use 75 squaremetres of EPSB property in perpetuity to access the parking lot of our proposed Mosque Project.

Our Treasurer and External Relations Coordinator Sim Senol has been leading these negotiations for TCS. Thanks to CoE lawyers who helped us draft the agreement we are getting close to an agreement.

TCS Board has agreed to hire a lawyer recently to deal with a variety of legal matters. We will have our lawyer review the agreement before it's signed by TCS Executives.

TCS Board Presented Mosque Project to Mr. Yakup Sekmen, Religious Affairs Attache for the Turkish Republic

Exactly two years after we presented the initial conceptual designs of our dream project to then Religious Affairs Attache Mr. Mahmut Demir, we had the privilege and honour to host the newly appointed Religious Affairs Attache of the Turkish Republic at the Turkish Canadian Society on November 25, 2019.

Mr. Yakup Sekmen came to Edmonton to meet with the Turkish Canadian community in the city and participate in an event organized to celebrate the birth of the Prophet Muhammed (s.a.v.).

During his visit, Turkish Canadian Society President Ahmet Topal, and Board Members Sinem Senol, Yusuf Akca, Mustafa Kamil Demir, Musa Ersoy and Efe Aksoy gave him an update about our mosque project.
