Toronto Ontario Temple

The Toronto Ontario Temple is the 44th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was the second temple to be dedicated in Canada (after the Cardston Alberta Temple), making it the first country in the world, outside the United States, to have two temples within its borders at the time of dedication. Germany became the second country outside the United States to have two temples when Germany reunified six weeks later.
