Toronto/IBNS: Commitment to strong ties between Canada and India was reaffirmed at the ‘Unity Meet,’ hosted by the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce (ICCC) and International Youth Canada (IYC) on Mahatma Gandhi’s Birth Anniversary.

A celebration of diversity, and the enduring bond between the people of Canada and India, The ‘Unity Meet,’ was largely attended by representatives of International students from various colleges, community organizations supporting international students and media focused on allaying the concerns and fears of Indian international students.

The event emphasized peace, unity, and cultural understanding.

The International Student Leaders’ interaction with the media, moderated by Prashant Srivastava, a Director of Indo Canada Chamber of Commerce was the highlight of the evening.

Sharing their experiences and perspectives about the current political landscape between both Canada and India, the student leaders of leading educational institutes including Seneca College, Lambton College, and St. Claire College advised the students to avoid the rumours on social media and staying in constant touch with their families back home and larger communities in Canada.

Student leaders also affirmed that they don’t see any safety concerns due to the political challenges and that students should feel absolutely safe in Canada.

Serving as a dynamic platform for networking and knowledge-sharing, the event ‘The Unity Meet’ creates positivity and reassurance for international students.

Jerin Raj, President of IYC focused his discussion on the crucial matter of supporting the international student community collectively to strengthen their stakes in Canada.

Whereas Indo Canada Chamber of Commerce (ICCC) fosters economic growth and collaboration between Indian and Canadian business communities, International Youth Canada (IYC) empowers young individuals to contribute to global development by providing resources and opportunities.

The event concluded with dinner, offering attendees another window for interest based and informal discussions.

The Unity Meet served as a dynamic platform for forging new connections, sharing knowledge, and fostering a sense of unity among the Indo-Canadian community.

The organizers expressed gratitude to members of the press, community leaders, and individuals who joined this event that created ripples of positivity and a reassurance to the hundreds of thousands of International students.
