September 11, 2015 – Ethiopian New Year
I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to members of the Canadian Ethiopian community on the occasion of the Ethiopian New Year, known as ‘Enkutatash’.
‘Enkutatash’ occurs on ‘Meskerem 1st’ in the Ethiopian Calendar or September 11th of the Gregorian Calendar. ‘Meskerem’ is known as a month of transition from the old year to the new and is a time to express hopes and dreams for the future.
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.
