ਸਾ ਧਰਤੀ ਭਈ ਹਰੀਆਵਲੀ ਜਿਥੈ ਮੇਰਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਬੈਠਾ ਆਇ ॥

That land, where my True Guru comes and sits, becomes green and fertile.

A Gurdwara in the Making –  Brief Journey :
2009 –  Land purchased at 410 Clair Rd East, Guelph
2014 –  Construction permit issued by City of Guelph
2015 –  Ground Breaking Ceremony to start the construction
2021 –   Move to 410 Clair Rd. E. site  from 70 Stevenson St. S.

Like any remarkable community achievement, the journey is never easy!  A multitude of ups and downs, together with emotional and financial challenges have to be endured. However in the end,  it is all worthwhile when the project is successfully completed, in Chardi Kala!  

May Waheguru Bless All. 
We thank the community for believing in this!
We are grateful for the many years of encouragement and support!
We pray that the community continues to carry forward Guru Nanak’s legacy of Kirit Karo, Naam Jaapo, Vand Chhako with devotion and compassion.
