TORONTO — On February 10th, Premier Doug Ford issued the following statement to mark the Lunar New Year:

“Today Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, and many other communities across the province are gathering to celebrate the beginning of a new year in the Lunar Calendar. It’s a special time for people to join family and friends, exchange gifts and meals, decorate their homes, and prepare to welcome health and good fortune in the year ahead.

In Ontario, we celebrate the strength of our diversity, and the many contributions that communities of Asian descent make to our province. Their impact is felt in multiple sectors, enriches our social fabric and helps make Ontario the best place in the world to live, work and raise a family.

2024 is the Year of the Dragon and is considered a symbol of strength, courage, and good fortune. On behalf of the Government of Ontario we wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous Year of the Dragon!”
