For people of Korean descent living in Canada and around the world, Korean New Year is a time to recognize good fortune, pay homage to elders and ancestors, and celebrate with family and friends. Also known as Seollal, it is a time to reflect on the past and look optimistically to the future.
For all Canadians, Korean New Year provides an excellent opportunity to reflect on the tremendous contributions that members of the Korean community have made to this country’s rich and diverse heritage.
This year we enter the Year of the Dragon, which is expected to be marked by excitement and exhilaration. Those born during this year are described as passionate, brave and self-assured.
As Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, I extend my best wishes to those celebrating Korean New Year, and I hope the Year of the Dragon brings everyone health, happiness and prosperity.
