Thankfulness embraces all the ethnicities who call Canada home. We all feel gratitude for the many blessings we enjoy in our beautiful country. As Canada becomes more and more multicultural, the celebration of Thanksgiving has evolved to include many international flavours and tastes that make this October get-together even more vibrant and special.

Celebrated on the second Monday in October, traditionally the hero of Thanksgiving has always been the roasted turkey with stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, with sides of cornbread, mashed potato, root vegetables, not forgetting the pumpkin pie! This is a nod to the autumn harvest, and the cornucopia of abundance and bounty, as we get together to give thanks.

We invite you to try some delicious multicultural takes on the traditional Thanksgiving spread, while keeping the essence of the holiday. Bring out your spices and let them waft through your kitchen with the diverse flavours of the world.

We wish you and your loved ones the blessings of abundance, happiness and togetherness. Happy Thanksgiving from our Maple Diversity family. Stay safe and enjoy your long weekend!
