How Malton Community
100,000 Sikhs live in Ontario, most of them around the GTA.
Waves of Sikh immigrants left India in the 1980s because of
the difficult religious and political climate back home. A
steady stream continues today.
Sikhs took jobs that revolved around Toronto's Pearson
International Airport. For these people settling in the
surrounding areas made sense. That's how the older, more
established Malton community started. It later branched into
newer neighbourhoods in Brampton and Mississauga.
that universal immigrant ambition to earn a better life that
brought the first significant wave of Sikhs from the Punjab to
southern Ontario in the late 1960s and early 1970s. There were
a handful of Sikhs back then, clusters that settled around
their then scarce places of worship, called Gurdwaras.
1952, a new Malton Public School was created on Airport Road
and was closed in June of 1981 after a massive decrease in
students due to the ope
many schools. After closing, the school was purchased by
the Sikh community in 1987 for its Gurdwara Building and led
to the increase in Sikh population seen through the late 80’s
to the present.
