To all those celebrating the festival of lights – we wish you a very happy Diwali!
The festival of Diwali is representative of the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. On this occasion, Hindu, Jain and Sikh communities encourage contributions to charitable causes and emphasize kindness and compassion toward others.
This holiday is also a reminder of the important role Ontario’s Jain, Hindu and Sikh communities play in contributing to the rich cultural diversity that makes our province such a wonderful place to live.
We wish you joy and peace on this special celebration of tolerance and goodness.
