Korean New Year

A personal message from the Premier

On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to our Korean community as you welcome Seollal, the Korean New Year.

It is a distinct pleasure to join you in ushering in the Year of the Dog. This is the lunar sign associated with hard work, loyalty and integrity — qualities that resonate with the values we all cherish as Ontarians.

For Korean Canadians and Koreans around the globe, this is a time for family — an occasion to visit and reconnect with loved ones, give gifts, gather for feasts, and honour the memory of ancestors. For
businesses, this is an opportunity to greet the new year with energy, hope and optimism.

As Premier, I am grateful for the traditions and values the Korean community brings to this province. You have fostered solid family and community ties, contributed to our economic vitality, and helped us
build a strong, diverse and harmonious society.

May the Year of the Dog bring you good health, prosperity and many
blessings!


Kathleen Wynne
Premier
