November 21, 2017 – Birthday of Guru Nanak Dev Sahib Ji

I would like to extend my best wishes to members of the Sikh faith in Canada on the occasion of the Birthday of Guru Nanak Dev Sahib Ji.

The Birthday of Guru Nanak Dev Sahib Ji, founder of the Sikh religion, is the most important celebration of Sikh gurus and is celebrated by Sikh and Punjabi communities worldwide.

Born in 1469 CE (Common Era) in the province of Punjab, India, Guru Nanak Dev Sahib Ji sought to heal the divide between Hindus and Muslims.  He proclaimed a message of love and harmony for all humanity and worked to promote equality between men and women.

Toronto is a proud multicultural city that embraces a wide variety of cultures and faiths.  Our city flourishes because of the diversity of people who have chosen to make Toronto their home. As we celebrate Canada 150 this year, it is important to recognize each and every community that plays a part in enhancing Toronto’s social and cultural landscape.

As the Newcomer’s Advocate with the City of Toronto I strongly believe that we must work to together to promote togetherness. We must Respect our newcomer communities. We must Accept our newcomer communities. We should Celebrate our diversity and Embrace our different cultures and traditions, because we are all part of the human RACE.
