Statehood Day of the Republic of Serbia

A personal message from the Premier

On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to everyone commemorating Statehood Day of the Republic of Serbia.


This occasion is a time to reflect on the First Serbian Uprising of 1804 — which ultimately resulted in the recognition of Serbia's statehood by the Ottoman Empire — and on the adoption of the First Serbian Constitution in 1835. It is also a time to celebrate Serbia’s rich cultural heritage.


I would like to take this opportunity to recognize the many ways in which Ontario’s Serbian community has helped shape our province into the strong and vibrant place we are so fortunate to call home.


Please accept my sincere best wishes for a meaningful and memorable day.


Kathleen Wynne
Premier
