Demographics The congregation has about four hundred members, many of whom are new immigrants. There are considerably more men who visit the temple than women; the day of our census the ratio of men to women was five to three. There are also very few young adults, the data we collected showed that for every three people in the fifteen to twenty-one age category, there were seventeen adults. The majority of the congregation are immigrants, with five first-generation immigrants for every four Canadian born members. They also tend to be fairly new immigrants; for every two immigrants who have been in Canada more than five years, there are three who have been in Canada less than five years.
