Statement by Minister Hussen in celebration of Dussehra

On October 5, Hindu communities in Canada and around the world celebrate Dussehra, one of the most important celebrations in the Hindu calendar

OTTAWA, ON, Oct. 5, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ - This October 5, Hindu communities in Canada and around the world celebrate Dussehra, marking the end of the nine-day celebration of Navratri.

During this special day, family and friends will come together to pray, enjoy a meal and take in colourful performances as part of a celebration that highlights the triumph of good over evil. Dussehra also serves as a great opportunity to acknowledge the invaluable contributions that Hindu Canadians have made and continue to make to our society.

As Minister of Housing and Diversity and Inclusion, I encourage everyone to learn more about how Hindu Canadians continue to help build a diverse and inclusive country that makes us proud.

To all those celebrating, have a happy and blessed Dussehra!
