Pączki Day 2020


Today staff and students celebrated cultural diversity in both Toronto campus and Mississauga campus, where everyone was able to enjoy some delectable donuts and also learned a little bit about this wonderful tradition.

Diversity is what makes Canada, the place we call home so great. We are privileged to have a plethora of different cultures in our country and cities that allows us to always learn something new and interesting, practically every day.

 Pączki Day is a time that people of Polish decent traditionally observe the day before Ash Wednesday. Paczki’s are like little jam filled deep fried donuts and historically they were made so that people could use up all sugar, eggs, butter and lard before Lent, during which folks give up an indulgence for 40 days.

Happy Pączki Day everyone!
