Peel schools recognize Sikh Heritage Month in April

​On April 9, 2019, as part of the board's commitment to equity and inclusion, the Peel board approved a motion to recognize and celebrate Sikh Heritage Month in April. ​​

The month of April was declared Sikh Heritage Month in Canada after a Member of Parliament brought forward a bill, which was unanimously passed and received royal assent from the Governor General. Ontario was the first province to declare the month of April as Sikh Heritage Month in 2013.

Throughout the month of April, we encourage staff, students, families and our communities to spend some time learning about the rich heritage, history, culture and contributions of Sikh Canadians and Sikh communities throughout the world.​
