As one of the first women of Indian origin elected in the western world Dr. Ruby Dhalla, Member of Parliament for Brampton Springdale has been a strong champion of youth, women, immigrant families and multiculturalism in Brampton. She recently joined members of the Brampton’s Hispanic Community for the 2nd Annual Brampton Hispanic Festival in which hundreds of Bramptonians gathered to celebrate Latino culture, food, folk dance and art.

Dr. Dhalla also participated in the inauguration of a number of new businesses in her constituency including the grand opening of a new Caribbean Restaurant specializing in cuisine from Trinidad, and the Caribbean Islands. “Small businesses are the core of our community’s economic prosperity. Small businesses provide jobs and opportunities for families. When small businesses succeed our entire community benefits” said Dr. Dhalla.

South Asian communities across Canada also recently celebrated the independence day of Pakistan and India. Dr. Dhalla joined residents, organizations and seniors groups across Brampton to celebrate the culture and achievements of both nations and the communities in Canada.

“Both the Indian and Pakistani community in Canada are to be commended for their achievements. There is tremendous opportunity and potential for Canada to work with the Diaspora to enhance, strengthen and promote cultural, economic and trade partnerships between Canada and South Asia. I look forward to working with all stakeholders to build our partnerships and relationships with our world’s growing and emerging economies,” said Dr. Dhalla.

Dr. Dhalla was also honoured to be the guest of honour at the Knights Table Volunteer Appreciation Gala. For over 20 years the Knights Table has helped Brampton families struggling with hunger, poverty and homelessness. The only soup kitchen in Brampton, the Knights Table has helped make a difference in the lives of many, with the help of over 300 volunteers. “Volunteers are true examples of what it means to be Canadian. Their devotion to helping others and building a safer community is admirable. The hard work, dedication and commitment of volunteers, are an inspiration for many Bramptonians" said Dr. Dhalla.

Dr. Dhalla looks forward to continue working with Bramptonians to build a strong community. As a grassroots MP Dr. Dhalla is focused on working with her constituents to build a strong and safe community for youth, women, seniors, and all families.
