Ottawa, March 23, 2012 – The Honourable Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, issued the following statement recognizing Pakistan Day:

Pakistan Day commemorates the Lahore Resolution, a major milestone towards Pakistan’s independence in 1947.

It is also known as Republic Day, as the country’s first constitution was adopted on this day in 1956.

For all Canadians, Pakistan Independence Day provides an excellent opportunity to reflect on the contributions that the Pakistani community has made to this country’s rich and diverse heritage.

As Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, I extend my best wishes for a very happy and festive Pakistan Day, and a bright and successful future, to everyone in Canada’s Pakistani community.
