Our School

Established in 1993, the Gurmat Center is a youth-focused, non-profit school created to foster a sense of belonging and instill strong values in the future of tomorrow: our children. The Gurmat Center aims to educate Sikh youth in their cultural language, the Gurmukhi script (Punjabi alphabet) and allow them to explore their Sikh identity in a safe and supportive environment.

The Gurmat Center office is a busy place! Our dedicated office sevadars are responsible for ensuring all departments are running smoothly while also preparing for all events and programs! #gurmatcenter #office #volunteer Registration for the 26th Annual Cross-Legged Competition is now open! Participants receive prizes for every hour they sit, individualized certificates and trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Visit the GC website to get more details and to register today. #gurmatcenter #crosslegged #competition #prizes This year GC families raised over $3000 for the Cyrus Center, a local youth homeless shelter in Abbotsford. With the Sangat’s support, many essential items needed in the winter season were donated such as shirts, warm pants, gloves and socks. The Gurmat Center administration team had the incredible opportunity to deliver these items to the centre! Come join us for Simran Club every Saturday morning from 7:00 - 8:00 am. At the end of every month participants enjoy waffles with many toppings. #gurmatcenter #simranclub #waffles Today, campers had an amazing last day of camp. Campers got the chance to go glow bowling, enjoy a delicious pizza lunch, and receive custom certificates in Darbar. Volunteers were also presented with certificates of appreciation as this camp wouldn’t have been possible without them! We are thankful to Vaheguru Jee for another successful camp. #gurmatcenter #wintercamp #day5 #bowling #volunteers Today, we were fortunate to have Bibi Neelam Kaur & Bhai Sandeep Singh join us as special guest speakers for day 4 of camp. Campers and volunteers also participated in Pajama Day today! One more day of camp left! #gurmatcenter #wintercamp #gurmatcamp #pajamaday #day4
