Nagar Kirtan 2018

We are just one week away from the Nagar Kirtan! The Akhand Paath will be started at 6 am on Thursday Morning. There will be sewa all week, so please help out if you have time. The decorations are already looking very beautiful inside the Gurdwara Sahib.

At 9:30 am the program will finish at the Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Sahib at 4298 Davis Road on Saturday morning, and at 10 am we will leave from there. We will head down Ospika to the CN center parking lot from 12-2 pm and back to the Gurdwara Sahib at 3:30 pm. Please remind non-Sikh friends who attend to cover their heads out of respect for the Guru Granth Sahib Ji- the sewadars will be handing out ramals.

The Nagar Kirtan (singing of hymns in the town) is our way of celebrating the creation of the Khalsa. Rather than just socializing as you walk, please try to maximize the time you spend listening to and singing Gurbani, both fulfilling our purpose in life and spreading the Name of God. When we are sangat there is a lot of bliss that comes from singing Gurbani together.

  1. Canadian medical school grads unable to get a residency may get a spot under new program funded by military
    These grads need to finish 2 to 5 years of compulsory, hands-on training before they can practise as doctors

    1. Yes they emailed us about that. The lack of spots is a huge problem, and hopefully this will help somewhat. I have a friend last year who went unmatched, and two this year who didn't (one got a spot in a different speciality second round though). Its devestating for those who don't get a position after all the training we do- everyone deserves a spot! Plus there is heavy debt. Most people don't realize the current situation- the general public seems to think increasing the medical school spots fixes the issue, while its the residency positions that are the limiting factor. It was quite stressful to go through the match process knowing the numbers are getting worse each year- hopefully this problem is resolved soon, and in the meantime this military program will help
