Hindu Heritage Month – November

Premier of Ontario – Première ministre de l’Ontario
November 2017


On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm wishes to our Hindu community as we celebrate Hindu Heritage Month.

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 celebration.


Kathleen Wynne
