Temple Lien Hoa is located in Brossard, Québec.
For many Vietnamese-Canadian refugees, the establishment of pagodas was an important step in preserving their cultural identity abroad. As early as September 1975, a group of first-wave refugees residing in the Montreal area founded the Lien Hoa ("Lotus Flower") Buddhist Group. They first met in a school hall, but in 1976, they decided to gather funds and build their own temple (Chua Lien Hoa), which was inaugurated a year later in Brossard, on Montreal's south shore. In the meantime, the group had become the Vietnamese Buddhist Association of Canada (Hôi Phât Giao Viêt Nam tai Canada).
