About Us


Hindu families have settled in Central Alberta for more than 30 years. However, the growth in number of families of Hindu faith has been very recent. The families settled in this region have been travelling to either Calgary or Edmonton to fulfill their religious aspirations and to participate in cultural activities based on Hindu faith. A proposal to establish a Society for the Hindu community started in summer of 2012 with a main focus to build a place of worship or temple in Red Deer area. Prior to this, a group of families were getting together regularly on a monthly basis to perform pooja and sing bhajans at a community hall or in one of the residences of the group. Since its inception in 2012 we have made significant progress towards our goal. The Society got its registration under the Alberta Societies Act and has its own legal standing effective December 5, 2012. This process involved drafting the Objectives of the Society, its Bylaw etc., and have the documents reviewed & approved by the Government of Alberta. Society has also been successful in getting recognized as Charitable Organization under the Federal government regulations. This is allowing us to collect donations and provide tax deductible receipts to donors.
