The message was published on the PM's officially website on the first day of the Lunar New Year (February 5) as followings:

“Over the next few days, Vietnamese communities in Canada and around the world will celebrate Tết Nguyên Đán, the Lunar New Year.

“Tết is a time to reflect on the past year, celebrate new beginnings, and look forward to the coming of spring. To welcome the Year of the Pig, families and friends will come together to enjoy special holiday foods and share best wishes for good fortune in the year to come.

“The Vietnamese New Year is also a chance to recognize the significant contributions Vietnamese Canadians make to our country each day. Generations of Vietnamese Canadians have helped build a better, more inclusive Canada, and that’s as true today as ever.

“On behalf of our family, Sophie and I wish everyone celebrating happiness, good fortune, and prosperity in the Year of the Pig.

“Chúc mừng năm mới."


The Vietnamese community in Canada currently numbers more than 240,000 people and have made significant contributions to the local economy. The community is expected to grow further as there are abundant cooperation opportunities in terms of education between Vietnam and Canada./.
