About Ontario Khalsa Darbar, Dixie Gurdwara

The Ontario Khalsa Darbar, Dixie Gurdwara is in Mississauga, Ontario. It is one of the largest Gurdwaras in Canada. In major Gurpurabs tens of thousands of Sangat take part.

As most new Gurdwaras in western world, the Dixie Gurdwara officially started early in 1978 in a small trailer. With help of increasing Sangat steadily more and more money was raised. In 1988 land was purchased and gurdwara building constructed. Because of Its new location 7080 Dixie Road, commonly it’s called Dixie gurdwara. The opening ceremony for the Gurdwara in 1989 drew a sangat of around 10,000.

 Dixie Gurdwara continued expanding in later years. In the mid to late 1990s the old building was getting overcrowded so a 6 million dollar project was announced to build a large extension. More land was bought and an outdoor stadium was built. New community centre was constructed and additions made to the Gurdwara.

Growth of gurdwara continues into the 21st century. In 2003 the Bandhi Chhor celebration drew in a crowd of over 40,000 people. To cater for this phenominal growth, a new plan in 2004 was announced to build a $3 million parking lot.

Now Dixie Gurdwara has become the central Gurdwara in the Greater Toronto Area.

In 2009 it was announced that Dixie Gurdwara will be getting solar panels. Even as world leaders in Copenhagen were struggling to take positive decisions, the local Sikh community set an example and took lead to go climate friendly. Mississauga’s Dixie Gurdwara was first temple in North America to go green.
