The settlement of the Panchal community in Ontario and in Canada
dates back to the 1960’s when a few families immigrated to Canada
predominantly from the United Kingdom, India and Africa to grasp
opportunities in the business and professional fields and to better
the life for their children. The majority of the people settled in
Ontario with a few families settling in British Columbia and
In 1986, likeminded individuals formed the “Panchal Samaj of
Ontario” with a vision to bring the Panchal community together by
offering various religious and social activities. Since that time,
the Panchal Samaj has grown and has sponsored numerous events such
as Vishwakarma Jayanti, Holi, Bhajans, Picnics, Navratri Raas Garba,
Diwali and Christmas celebrations and senior’s and youth events.
Over the years, the Samaj has grown to encompass the whole of the
Ontario region, other parts of Canada, the United States of America
and continues its base to other parts of the world. The Samaj has a
professional corporate structure in place with a Board of Trustees
together with a Board of Directors duly elected through a general
election process by the Panchal members.
Panchal Samaj of Ontario is always looking for volunteers. We are
encouraging members to come forward and give back to their community
by volunteering and serving on the Board of Directors. We are
actively looking for new thoughts, ideas and directions and we
encourage all members, young and old, to participate in serving the Samaj. Your contribution will be well respected and welcomed.
