Celebrating Holi

A personal message from the Premier

On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to everyone observing Holi.

Known as the "festival of colours," this Hindu spring festival represents thanksgiving for a good harvest and the triumph of good over evil. Notably, Holi also includes the highly social and entertaining custom of throwing coloured powders on one another.

Holi is an important part of Ontario’s diversity. In this province, we derive strength from the fact that we come from all parts of the globe and practise many faiths and celebrate varied traditions.

To everyone marking Holi, Please accept my best wishes for a meaningful and enjoyable celebration.

Kathleen Wynne
