Khalsa Diwan Society, Abbotsford

As the first Sikh establishment in British Columbia, the Khalsa Diwan Society is a key historical figure when looking at the history of Sikh migration to British Columbia. At a time when newly migrated Sikh families needed a communal ground in order to share their collective experiences, and assist one another emotionally, financially, etc., the establishment of the Khalsa Diwan Society helped Sikhs to not only build their community, but also to build their lives in British Columbia.
