Father’s Day is a day to honour not only our fathers, but all the men who have been a father-figure in our lives – brothers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, friends or ‘Big Brothers’.
The celebration of Father’s Day dates back to 1908. Over the last century, we have paid tribute to fathers and thanked them for their guidance, wisdom, unconditional love and support that have helped shape our lives.
As Ramadan begins, I would like to offer warm regards to all Canadians who are observing this holy month.

The observance of Ramadan, one of the holiest times in the Muslim religious calendar, offers a time to reflect on one’s good fortune, the plight of those less fortunate and the importance of religion in one’s life.
