The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on Diwali and Bandi Chhor Divas:

"Today, we join Hindu, Sikh, Jain, and Buddhist communities in Canada and around the world to celebrate Diwali and Bandi Chhor Divas.

"This holiday – known as the Festival of Lights – symbolizes the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance.

"Families and friends will gather to pray, exchange gifts, share meals, and light diyas in a spirit of hope. Diwali is also a chance to honour the many communities that celebrate this occasion.

"Canadians of Hindu, Sikh, Jain, and Buddhist faiths, as well as the larger South Asian diaspora, shape our country for the better every day.

"On behalf of our family, Sophie and I wish everyone celebrating a happy Diwali and Bandi Chhor Divas."
