On this occasion of Canada Day, we reflect on the tragic events occurred in the history of this land and honour the lost souls from the Indigenous people at the residential schools. Our hearts go out to their families, friends and communities.
Immigrants from across the globe alongside Indigenous people form this great, diverse nation hand in hand and pay tribute to reconciliation, inclusion, fairness, and respect to live with each other in peace and equity under the rule of law with freedom of speech and worship.
Imam Hossein Cultural Centre of Ottawa, as part of the Iranian-Canadian Muslim community in Ottawa, stands in solidarity with Indigenous people to promote understanding of the past, tolerance at the present time, and hope for the bright future of this beautiful country. The future is in our hands, let’s all shape it together.
Happy Canada Day 2021!
