April is Sikh Heritage Month at the TDSB

Tuesday, March 31, 2020
Categories: Happenings @ TDSB

Sikh Heritage Month is proudly recognized at the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) during the month of April.  On March 22, 2016, the Board of Trustees voted to designate April of each year as Sikh Heritage Month, making TDSB the first school board in Canada to do so, and matching recognition by the Province of Ontario who proclaimed the Sikh Heritage Month Act in December 2013.

April is an important month for the Sikh community. In this month, Sikh Canadians celebrate Vaisakhi, which marks the creation of the Khalsa and the Sikh articles of faith. Sikh Canadians widely celebrate Vaisakhi, also known as Khalsa Day, across Ontario.

By proclaiming the month of April as Sikh Heritage Month, the Province of Ontario recognizes the important contributions that Sikh Canadians have made to Ontario’s social, economic, political and cultural fabric. Sikh Heritage Month is an opportunity to remember, celebrate and educate future generations about Sikh Canadians and the important role that they have played and continue to play in communities across Ontario.”

This year the Khalsa Day parade scheduled to take place in Toronto, ON (between Canadian National Exhibition grounds and Toronto City Hall) on Sunday, April 26 has been cancelled as a result of the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus).
