For the latest Canadian Buddhist news and publications, please visit our sister site:

Welcome to the Sumeru guide to more than 600 Canadian Buddhist organizations, including temples, centres, associations, groups and resources.

Search by word, location, or tradition.

We have designed the site to be as user-friendly as possible on mobile devices as well as desktops.

Entries have been extensively researched and are current, except for those organizations tagged “Under Review”. Organizations under review typically do not have a website, or are not recognized by their parent organizations. If you have current information about any organization that is under review, confirming its operation and current contact information, please let us know so we can update our records.

Listings now include charitable registration information for relevant organizations, including registration number and date of registration. If you click on the live registration number link, it will take you to the Canada Revenue Agency public filing for that organization. We recommend using Firefox as your browser for this.

May all beings find happiness and the causes of happiness.

This Directory is looking for a new home. After building and managing this site for 12 years, I’m ready to hand it off to someone younger who can give it the attention it deserves (which is more than I have available now).

There is lots of potential to include new features such as maps, ability for individual centres to update their own pages, etc.

If you are interested in taking it over, please e-mail me and we’ll discuss: john [at] sumeru-books dot com.
