The themes of our recent Winter Galas   

In 2015, we took all of you on a excursion with our theme of Travel. Explore. Discover. In 2015, the ICCC launched its Travel & Hospitality committee, and opened the vistas for Indo-Canadians to travel to their motherland, to explore the land of their ancestors, and to discover the many and varied charms of a land that is the combination of different centuries coexisting in the present. While promoting India as a travel destination to Indo-Canadians and Canadians, the Winter Gala also promoted Canada to Indians. 

  In 2014, we celebrated the Royal Darbar, give yourself a royal feast. Indian Royalty is known to the world for its majestic life style, attractive Rajput and Mughal era architecture and delicious dishes. Royal families in India have been instrumental in creating a new cultural identity for India. Bollywood have been themed its movies on royal families; the one among them was ‘Mughal-e-Azam’. Apart from that there were immense number of stories on the royal families which we heard from our parents and grandparents.

In 2013, we celebrated the hundred years of cinema with the theme First Day. First Show. Nothing captures the imagination of people of Indian origin globally as cinema does. The medium has given us stars we love, movies that we remember, and unforgettable songs. While Indian cinema’s popularity at home is all-pervasive, its contribution to India’s growing influence worldwide is also becoming increasingly evident by its growing appeal across different cultures. In celebrating Indian cinema, ICCC acknowledges the significance of the power the medium has had over the last century, and will continue to have for many more years. 

In 2012, we celebrated our stars by honouring them. The theme was Recognizing Our Stars, and the Chamber bestowed the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals to individuals who made a sterling contribution to the ICCC and to the Indo-Canadian community. It was a year of remembering all those stalwarts who had contributed their time and effort to make the Chamber what it is today.The program saw the participants of an unprecedented three federal ministers - Joe Oliver, Jason Kenney and Julian Fantino. 
In 2011, the theme was Indian Railways – nothing exemplifies connectivity and linkages better than the Indian Railways. We recreated a Railway Station – replete with all the paraphernalia that is the quintessence of a station. The Celebration Express evening was a journey down the memory tracks of the innumerable train travels in India; recalling the unique ambience - the sounds, the smells, the heat and the dust - that makes the train so quintessential to the travel across the Indian subcontinent.

In 2010, we brought alive the bygone era of 1970s with the theme of Bollywood Rewind. The venue was draped with giant-sized billboards and movie posters, several screens played songs from that era; a real-life studio camera with the director’s chair gave our guests a feel of an era bygone but not forgotten.  

In 2009, we celebrated with the theme of Royal Maharaja Motif. The royal theme was reflected in the ornate décor of the venue to the breathtakingly intricate medieval clothes that the guests adorned, and the specially recreated cuisine made for an evening that even overawed our Chief Guest for the evening, Federal Minister Jason Kenny.
