August 27, 2015 – Moldovian Independence Day
I want to express my best wishes to the Canadian Moldovian Community as you celebrate the 24th Anniversary of Moldova’s Independence
Each August 27 commemorates the day the Republic of Moldova adopted the Declaration of Independence from the Soviet Union.
Moldova became fully independent from the Soviet Union on December 25, 1991. The following day, the Soviet Union ceased to exist. Declaring itself a neutral state three months later, on March 2, 1992, the country gained formal recognition as an independent state at the United Nations. In 1994, Moldova became a member of NATO’s Partnership for Peace program and also a member of the Council of Europe on June 29, 1995.
Our city flourishes because of the diversity of people who have chosen to make Toronto their home. Toronto’s diverse communities share and celebrate their cultures and traditions with residents in every corner of our city.
As a city proud of its multiculturalism, each and every community plays a part in enhancing Toronto’s social and cultural landscape.
