April is Sikh Heritage Month in Canada. As the first of its kind in the world, Sikh Heritage Month is a celebration of the rich arts, culture, and heritage of Sikhs across Canada. It is also a recognition of the many contributions of the Sikh community in making Canada the country that it is today.
Canada, one of the largest Sikh diasporas in the world, is home to more than 500,000 members of the Sikh community. Since the arrival of the first Sikh immigrants in the late 19th century, the Sikh community has helped make Canada a stronger country through its accomplishments across our society.
The values of equality, selflessness, openness, and compassion are the core principles of Sikhism. Learn more about Sikh Heritage Month, including events taking place across BC.
