The Vancouver British Columbia Temple is the 131st temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is the first temple of the church to be built in British Columbia and the 7th to be built in Canada.

Prior to the dedication of the Vancouver British Columbia Temple, British Columbian Saints crossed the U.S.-Canada border to attend the Seattle Washington Temple. On March 10, 2009, to a crowd of about 200 onlookers, the steeple of the Vancouver British Columbia Temple was installed followed by placement of the gold-leafed angel Moroni statue.


Located on an elevated site near the Trans-Canada Highway, just north of picturesque Langley on the east side of Metro Vancouver, the Vancouver British Columbia Temple stands as an inspiring momument of faith in the Lord, Jesus Christ. Sharing the site are the Langley meetinghouse, which houses Distribution Services, and the temple president's residence. The south end of the property features a grassy and beautifully wooded retreat that has been incorporated into the immaculately kept temple grounds.
