Get Directions


We know it can be intimidating when you enter a new Church so our goal is to make it as easy as possible. Toronto Buddhist Church is a place where you can meet new people, join groups of interest, listen to the Dharma or just enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the Temple.

Every Sunday morning, we offer service in the Hondo and then serve light refreshments in the Social Hall where you can meet new friends and share your experiences.

We take pride in our Temple and would love to share it with you!


If you are new, and would like to have someone meet you and show you around, please fill in the form below.  We have members available to meet with you on the first and third Sunday of each month.


At the Temple we have many organizations that may be of interest to you. Each of these groups is distinctive, so explore each one and if you are interested, we can put you in touch with someone from that group.

If joining a group is not for you then feel free to come and attend Sunday service or participate in any one of our classes and workshops.
