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.

Gurmat Center families participate in the annual Remembrance Day Ceremony at Thunderbird Memorial Square in Abbotsford. #gurmatcenter #lestweforget #remembranceday Gurmat Center Tutoring is underway! GCT supports students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 in all core subjects as well as Punjabi and Nitnem Santhia! The 1-hour sessions will allow elementary and middle school students to develop academic skills and improve in their education.
