Chardi Kala:  Creating a Canada where no one is left behind

Chardi Kala: the idea of maintaining optimism in the face of adversity 

Canadians are working hard, playing by the rules and doing everything right, but as the costs of rent, mortgages and grocery bills continue to escalate, Canadians are falling further behind. Increasingly, Canadians want change and are looking for an alternative to the status quo.

 Join Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh at this year’s Bell Lecture, where he will share his vision for a Canada where no one is left behind.

About the Presenter

Leader of Canada’s New Democratic Party, Jagmeet Singh is a lawyer, a human rights activist, and a former MPP in Ontario. Jagmeet understands the struggles Canadians are faced with because as a young man, he had to step up and take care of his family.

Recently, Jagmeet and the NDP Caucus delivered the greatest expansion of universal healthcare in generations, with the creation of a new dental care program and concrete steps towards national pharmacare.

Jagmeet is driven to make sure government delivers for people with stronger services that help create a better future for everyone.
