Happy Eid from Ontario - Canada.
A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM THE PREMIER
On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to everyone celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr.
Ontario’s greatest strength is its diversity. Our province has been enriched immeasurably by the many cultures, languages and religions of those who live here. Ontario’s Muslim community is a vital part of that cherished diversity and has contributed immensely to the social, cultural and economic life of our province. These contributions have made Ontario a more dynamic and vibrant place to live.
As Muslims around the world celebrate the end of Ramadan, they also take time to cultivate a spirit of peace, fellowship, and unity. Eid-ul-Fitr is also a time to reflect on the values that we all hold dear—giving to charity, building friendships and strengthening family relationships.
As you join with family and friends during this time of faith and generosity, please accept my best wishes for an enjoyable and inspirational holiday.
