Prime Minister Trudeau's message on Nowruz
Har Ruz etan Nowrouz, Nowruz etan Pyrouz!
Hello everyone—and happy Nowruz!
No matter how you celebrate, Nowruz is a time for family and friends to get together around the haft-seen table.
It’s a time for spiritual renewal, festive meals, and for traditions—both old and new.
It’s a chance to show gratitude for our blessings and share our hopes and aspirations for the year ahead.
After these two difficult years, we’re all looking forward to more time spent together.
Whether you’re celebrating in Vancouver or Edmonton, the GTA or Halifax, or anywhere else in Canada—our country is better because of your rich culture and heritage.
And as we come together this year, I want to extend my deep appreciation for the Persian, Afghan, Kurdish, Zoroastrian, Bahá’í, Central Asian, and Ismaili communities who make our country strong and diverse.
From my family to yours, Sophie and I wish everyone celebrating a happy and safe Nowruz.
