About Parya

Parya is the pre-eminent cultural organization with a focus on the Canadian-Iranian community in the Greater Toronto Area.The Canadian-Iranian community numbers around 100,000 in the GTA and is concentrated in North Toronto and Southern parts of York Region with special reference to Richmond Hill, Thornhill and Markham. The physical location of Parya at 344 John St in Markham is in the very heart of the geographical communities populated by the Iranian community resulting in its transforming very quickly into the cultural and social heart of the community. In addition to a wide range of programming aimed at the Iranian community, Parya has also emerged as a meeting point for various other cultures. It has been built by Iranian but it serves and welcomes all community members. Parya has successfully endeavoured to diversify its programming throughout the years to respond to community needs of more than 1000 members in a year.
