Ghana Independence Day

A personal message from the Premier

On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to members of our Ghanaian community as you mark the 61st Independence Day of Ghana.

On this historic occasion, Ghanaian Canadians and Ghanaians around the world pause to reflect on your people’s history and your country’s journey to nationhood. As the first sub-Saharan nation to become
independent from colonial rule, Ghana inspired other African nations to seek self-determination.

This is also an opportunity to celebrate the strong relationship between our two countries. Canada and Ghana share a Commonwealth history and enjoy a mutually beneficial partnership based on trade, security
and people-to-people ties.

Ontario is proud to be home to a dynamic community of Ghanaian Canadians. I thank all of you for the talents, skills and rich heritage you have brought to our multicultural success story.

I offer my best wishes for a meaningful celebration of Ghana’s Independence Day.

Kathleen Wynne
