Toronto - His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, has toured a number of leading higher education institutions in Canada as part of his efforts to upgrade academic and research life in University of Sharjah.

Sheikh Sultan started his tour with McMaster University in Ontario where he instituted Sharjah chair for Islamic Studies. He met with Professor Peter George, president of the university, who thanked him for his gesture. Professor George said that there are about half million Muslims in Canada and many of them would like to get more knowledge about Islam and its impact on socio-economic, and political situation in the world.

During a visit to University of Toronto, Sheikh Sultan signed - in his capacity as Supreme President of University Sharjah - an agreement for cooperation in engineering research, energy, environment and transport. A cooperation agreement for scientific research and exchange of visits was also inked with the University of Carleton in Ontario. The Ruler also visited University of York, the third largest higher education institute in Canada, where he signed an agreement for establishing centres for humanities and social studies at the University of Sharjah. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
