Toronto, Ontario, 2 August 2016 (CBNS)

The Canadian Bahá’í National Centre property was purchased more than 40 years ago before the City of Toronto expanded to the northern suburbs of Markham, Richmond Hill and beyond, surrounding the administrative centre of the Bahá’í Community in Canada. Today, the 22-acre property remains a thriving green space around the National Centre building. In addition to a large woodlot, lawns, flower beds and shrubbery that adorn the property, a golf course to the west and municipal parks to the east and north surround the building.
