In a historic milestone, Canada declared November to be the Hindu Heritage Month in Canada at a federal level. Starting November 1, 2022 every year this month will be celebrated as Hindu Heritage Month.
Hindu Community in Vancouver and elsewhere in Canada thanked MP Chandra for bringing the motion about Hindu Heritage Month and also thanked Government of Canada for the honor & the recognition. Metro Vancouver is home to a large and vibrant Hindu community which has made important contributions across a variety of sectors. Hindutva is the third most popular religion in Canada. Diwali, one of the most significant Hindu festivals, falls in either November or October each year.
Hindu Community in Vancouver and other parts of Canada will continue to organize various events to celebrate this day. You will see various events to celebrate Hindu Heritage Month in Vancouver and other parts of Canada starting November 2023.
It is an opportunity for others to learn more about Hindu culture, respect each other more and make a vibrant multicultural & peaceful society in the process.
