About OBS

buddha-headThe Ottawa Buddhist Society is a Canadian Registered Charity (BN:119071256RR0001) located in Ottawa, Ontario and dedicated to advancing the principles and practices of Buddhism in the Theravada tradition.


The OBS is guided by its Spiritual Mentors – all are monastics who have given their lives over to the renunciate life.


The organization is managed and led entirely by a volunteer Administrative Team.  The OBS has no premises – our activities are held at rented or donated locations.  However, we can be reached in a variety of ways – see Contact Us.
