On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to members of the Tamil community on the occasion of Tamil Heritage Month.
Tamil Heritage Month is a time to celebrate and showcase the beauty, richness and vibrancy of Tamil culture. The Tamil Harvest Festival, Thai Pongal, takes place in January, along with many other Tamil cultural events.
This occasion is also a time to pay tribute to the Tamil community. In becoming an integral part of our multicultural success story, members of this dynamic community continue to help make Ontario even stronger. I am grateful for their many enduring contributions to the social, economic and cultural life of our province.
Please accept my sincere best wishes for a memorable and inspiring Tamil Heritage Month.
