For 20 years the MAB used the Multicultural Centre in Brantford as its head-office. Most of its activities including the religious ones took place at the Multicultural Centre too. In 1999, the MAB bought the property on 288 Murray Street and established it as the first Mosque in Brantford. 6 years later in April 2005, the association purchased the Masonic Lodge on 192 Greenwich Street.
