An Overview of Chinmaya Mission Ottawa

Chinmaya Mission Ottawa (CMO) was founded in 1991 as the Ottawa chapter of Chinmaya Mission Halton (CMH), a Canada Revenue Agency registered charitable organization. Together, the two chapters partnered with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) on various development initiatives in India.

Within Ottawa, CMO is run entirely by a team of dedicated volunteers who run weekly programs including children’s programs for ages 5 to 17 (Bala Vihar), adult study classes, classes for youth and yoga. We also organize special Acharya (spiritual leader) visits for lectures, seminars and family camps. In addition, Yagnas (public discourses) by visiting Swamis provide much-desired spiritual sustenance for the earnest seekers.

We deliver our programs through our community center on 1088 Ogilvie Rd, Gloucester, ON K1J 7P8. While most of our members are part of the Southeast Asian community, we welcome people from any cultural background and faith.
