Lucky signs

Luck, Abundance, Longevity, Happiness and Good Fortune are known to be the basic and modest wishes in the lives of ordinary people in Chinese culture. These five characters in calligraphy are an artistic expression of the blessings received by those who touch them.

Canada – the adopted home for many immigrants – is a country where abundance, luck, happiness, wealth, and stability abound and with which many of us are blessed. We wish for all Canadians to embrace and enjoy Luck, Abundance, Longevity, Happiness, and Good Fortune forever.
