Mayor Crombie’s Statement on Sikh Heritage Month

 “On behalf of the City of Mississauga and Members of Council, it gives me great pleasure to join with all residents to recognize Sikh Heritage Month here in the province of Ontario.

“I would like to commend Mississauga Member of Provincial Parliament Jagmeet Singh, who successfully initiated and secured passage of legislation to officially proclaim Sikh Heritage Month each April.

“Mississauga is a world-class city home to residents, of different cultural backgrounds and faiths, and our Sikh population is one of our most dynamic, active, and engaged communities, which has enriched all of Mississauga.

“During Sikh Heritage Month, the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA), in collaboration with The Sikh Foundation of Canada, are hosting an entire month of free special events, exhibits, and activities for all Mississaugans to enjoy.

“Throughout April, I encourage all residents to experience the wealth of history, sacred literature, and lasting teachings, which exemplify the Sikh faith.”
