On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend
warm wishes to our Hindu community as we celebrate Hindu Heritage
In Ontario, we draw strength from the diversity of our people —
people of all faiths, all cultures and all ethnicities. No matter what is
happening elsewhere in the world, We want our province to continue
being a safe and welcoming place for people of all faiths.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, Hindu immigrants have been
coming to Canada. Today, Ontario is home to a large and vibrant
Hindu community. Hindu Canadians from across Ontario have made
significant contributions in science, education, medicine, law, politics,
business, culture and sports. They continue to help foster growth,
prosperity and innovation throughout Ontario.
By proclaiming November as Hindu Heritage Month, the Province of
Ontario recognizes the important contributions that Hindu Canadians
have made — and continue to make — to Ontario’s culture, economy
and public life.
Please accept my sincere best wishes for a joyous and meaningful
