Minister Davis Wishes Jewish Newfoundlanders and Labradorians a Happy Hanukkah

The Honourable Bernard Davis, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour, wishes all Jewish Newfoundlanders and Labradorians a happy Hanukkah.

Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day celebration that includes the lighting of candles on the menorah. It is a time for families to enjoy each other’s company, play games, share festive treats and exchange gifts.

To recognize and celebrate the diversity of the province’s residents, the Provincial Government acknowledges cultural holidays and events, including through the 2018 Diversity Calendar, a key commitment in The Way Forward on Immigration in Newfoundland and Labrador.

This collaborative, partnership-driven immigration action plan delivers on commitments in The Way Forward to strengthen the province’s economic foundation and deliver better services and better outcomes for residents. The Way Forward outlines all actions the Provincial Government is taking to achieve a strong, diversified province with a high standard of living, and can be viewed at thewayforward.gov.nl.ca.
