The Centennial Gala


The Sikh Foundation of Canada's annual Sikh Centennial Gala takes place in April at The Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. The Sikh Centennial Gala was founded in 1997 to commemorate a century of Sikh settlement in Canada. The Gala celebrates the history and culture of Sikh Canadians, and our engagement in the social fabric and economic success of this country.

Over the years it has become a widely recognized forum for the Sikh community in Canada, and the Sikh diaspora around the world. Each year the Centennial Gala recognizes the achievements of remarkable individuals—Sikhs and non-Sikhs--from all walks of life. These are individuals who exemplify Sikh ideals and values, in particular our commitment to equality, our strong work ethic and "Seva"-service to humanity. Those honored in the past have included the Prime Minister of Canada, Chief of Defense Staff, Justice of the Supreme Court, as well as creative artists, humanitarians, law makers, scientists, scholars, business leaders and entrepreneurs.

Sikh International Film Festival

Held at the Art Gallery of Ontario in October, Sikh International Film Festival shines a spotlight on uniquely Sikh stories and Sikh storytellers, with a special focus on documentaries, features and short films that celebrate the rich heritage and cultural contributions of Sikhs around the world.

The Sikh International Film Festival was founded to support and encourage the production and promotion of films based on the wealth of Sikh stories and perspectives to share with mainstream and industry audiences, and create opportunities and resources for the next generation of Sikh filmmakers.

The growing Sikh community in the Greater Toronto Area provides an eager audience base for the Sikh International Film Festival, while Toronto’s well deserved reputation as a film city allows for the cultivation of a broader audience of film fans, promoting cultural understanding and appreciation among film buffs from across the GTA.

The Sikh International Film Festival Toronto is destined to become Canada’s premier celebration of Sikh stories, and serve as an incubator and launching pad for the next generation of Sikh storytelling.
