The population of people with Nepalese heritage is growing in Canada, with the highest numbers in Toronto and its surrounding areas. Because of this, the Nepalese Canadian Heritage Centre is located in Brampton, Ontario, a suburb of Toronto.
Nepalese culture is a blend of Hindu and Buddhist beliefs. People of Nepalese heritage tend to take great pride in their culture's history and customs.
The purpose of the Nepalese Canadian Heritage Centre is to preserve this culture and to provide a place of worship for its populace. The organization also works towards harmony and understanding between Canadians of Nepalese background and those of other cultures and heritages.
