Theravada Buddhist Community Membership Application

The Theravada Buddhist community is a charitable, not-for-profit and equitable organization.  We welcome people of all faiths, genders, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, social backgrounds, ages and abilities.

Our Mission Statement

  1. To encourage the study, practice and realization of the teachings of the Buddha as outlined in Theravada Buddhism.
  2. To support and encourage the lay community by maintaining a space for the weekly practice of meditation along with discussion and exploration of the Dhamma, the teachings of the Buddha.
  3. To provide the opportunity for the lay community to receive teachings from monastics in the Theravada Buddhist tradition.
  4. To support the various monasteries (Buddhist Sanghas) within Ontario that are established in the Theravada Buddhist tradition.

(as approved at our 2017 Annual General Meeting)


Application for Membership in TBC is open to all participants in our activities who support our Mission Statement and are 18 years of age or older. Membership provides the right to be informed of and to vote at TBC general meetings, and to receive communications about activities and events for members.

To apply to become a member, please complete the form below.

Membership is renewed annually. After you’ve been approved, you will be notified when your membership needs be renewed.

There are no charges for membership with TBC. Our sangha, however, is fully dependent on the dana (willing support) of its participants, especially for our weekly space rental fees, and so financial donations are gladly welcomed. If you would like to make an offering, you can do so on our Donations page.
