Mississauga, Ontario, Sept 11, 2019  (Yes Punjab News)

On Saturday, September 7, 2019, EcoSikh Canada planted 200 trees in Mississauga, Canada in partnership with Credit Valley Conservation. This plantation at Courtney Park Athletic Fields was in celebration of the 550th birth-anniversary of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism. This initiative was part of a restoration project and had support from local business Prava Home Staging and Decor and security and defense giant BAE Systems.

EcoSikh formally launched their Canadian campaign at Black Creek Pioneer Village on August 24th. The first-ever ceremonial tree was planted in Canada to honour Sikh faith founder Guru Nanak.

MP Ruby Sahota and MPP Deepak Anand were also on hand to support and honor EcoSikh Canada with certificates of service and environmental advocacy from the Canadian Federal and Provincial Governments respectively. Green Party Candidates Mike Schmitz and Christine Porter arrived early planted many trees to the conclusion of the event, living up to the their party’s reputation.

“EcoSikh Canada is pledging to plant 55,000 trees by 2021 across Canada. This is an aggressive target, but with a half a million Sikhs in Canada celebrating Guru Nanak’s 550th Gurpurab, you will see many of these events over the next few months and into 2020.” Said, EcoSikh Canada President, Roop Sidhu.

EcoSikh’s global organization was established in 2009 and it has engaged the worldwide Sikh community on climate change issues. EcoSikh has planted 34 mini forests in Punjab in the recent months to combat climate change. The organization was derived from meetings with Prince Philip’s Alliance of Region and Conservation (ARC) and the United Nations’ Development Programme (UDNP).

EcoSikh Canada is appealing the community to support its tree plantation drive in the country and asking people to donate at ecosikh.ca. EcoSikh Canada is a not-for-profit, charitable organization created to support awareness through partnership and active participation in the reversal of climate change.
