VANCOUVER(November 23, 2018) – This week, Sikhs in British Columbia and around the world are commemorating one of the most important observances in the Sikh calendar: the birthday of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
Guru Nanak founded the Sikh tradition on the basis of work, equality, diversity, tolerance, community service and compassion. Today, Sikhism has grown into one of the largest faith communities in the world. The Sikh community has played an indispensable role in building British Columbia — contributing to our diversity, unity, and prosperity.
To all British Columbians of Sikh faith or heritage, we extend our best wishes to everyone commemorating the birth of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Happy Gurpurab!
