September 19, 2018 – Armenian Independence Day
I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to members of the Canadian Armenian community on the occasion of Armenian Independence Day.
In Armenia, Independence Day is an official holiday that commemorates the establishment of the Republic of Armenia on September 21, 1991, after seventy years of Soviet rule.
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. 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.
