Watch: Virtual Canadian children’s choir commemorates Church’s 200K membership in that country

183 children from the 53 stakes across Canada sing ‘I Love To See the Temple’ in eight languages

A recent video of a virtual Canadian children’s choir singing “I Love To See the Temple” is helping The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints commemorate reaching 200,000 members in Canada.

At 183 voices strong, the choir is reflective of the Church in Canada, with each of 53 stakes across the country represented by singers.

The video also represents a variety of the North American nation’s cultures and languages, with children singing in American Sign Language, Cantonese, English, French, Mandarin, Spanish, Tagalog and Michif, the indigenous language of the Métis people in Canada.

“I Love To See the Temple” was chosen also to commemorate the Winnipeg Manitoba Temple, Canada’s ninth temple, which was dedicated and began operations less than a year ago.

The video was released on Aug. 7.

The video not only shows the 183 children but includes photographs and videos of the beauty and features of Canada’s nine temples. It concludes with a visual depiction of Christ and the statement: “Temples stand as a beacon to the world of God’s love for His children and the truth that families can be forever.”

The nine temples in Canada, by date of dedication, are:

The Church currently has 173 dedicated temples, with 109 more under construction or announced and in planning, making for a worldwide total of 282 temples.
