“Maritime Sikh Society completely supports farmers in India, not because it is a religious issue, which it is not, but because it is the right thing to do.”
The Maritime Sikh Society in the last 52 years has made a tremendous contribution towards the religious, cultural, and social lives of Sikhs in the Maritimes. It is the only Gurdwara for Sikhs east of Montreal. Twice a year, once on Guru Nanak’s birthday in November, and a second time on Baisakhi celebrations in April, the MSS arranges shabad Kirtan of Professional ragis (musicians) from Toronto or elsewhere.
The Maritime Sikh Society is an organization of volunteers. The Society has been holding regular classes for teaching the Punjabi language and shabad kirtan to the children. The Society welcomes people of all communities to the Gurdwara, in keeping with Sikh traditions.
The Maritime Sikh Society has much to be proud of in its continuing support of the cultural, religious and social lives of Sikh residents in the region. In its relatively short history, it has grown into a vibrant community of friends. The new millennium promises even more success for the Society.
