Mobeen Khaja, President of the Association said “Canada is an exemplary model of a multicultural and pluralistic society where immigrants from all over the world can have a feeling of belonging to this great nation within no time of their arrival here and live and work side by side in harmony and peace, and that strides are being made every day in combating whatever little racism exists here.”
