Our vision was for this publication to become a timeless resource that would serve to preserve the heritage of Indo-Canadians on the West Coast of Canada and provide an expanded narrative of our history—a narrative that we don’t find in our history textbooks.
Sadly, most times we lose our treasures not by fire, flood or willful destruction, but simply by neglect—and that we simply could not allow. With the release of this first edition, we embark on our own journey to capture the timeless stories of one hundred of our pioneers. This publication is just the beginning…
Some initial reviews we received:
“I picked up four books and gave them as gifts to my family and friends. This is the greatest book I’ve ever had. Our kids like it so much that we now have more information about our pioneer who ‘broke the ice’ for us.”
– Niranjan Dhaliwal, Surrey, BC
“Kudos to this publication… this will be valuable to pass down to our children and grandchildren.”
– Tar & Rita Mattu, Vancouver, BC
“…the 100 Year Journey is awesome. Well done! We read it from front to back… courageous stories of our Pioneers.”
– Buncy Pagely, Victoria, BC
“The book has blown me away! I’m still speechless! Beautiful work.”
– Jagdeep Raina, Providence, Rhode Island, USA

The 100 Year Journey book is a wonderful book of memories coming forward of what our forefathers have done, of their struggles, hardships, vivid pictorial stories that have made history for us in Canada.
At the end of each story they always held their heads high and they made it in a new country and layed foundations and paths for all of us to come through.
Rana and Rupa Vig have created this unique one of a kind book that will have you intrigued to keep on reading and turning the pages. It has given an excellent tool for our Schools, Libraries Nationally and Internationally. It has raised our awareness of the early South Asian Pioneers of their struggles and triumphs.
As someone who works and lives in the Vancouver area, I know of many of the descendants of the pioneers featured. What impresses me most is that so many of the 100 people featured have families that are still making an impact locally and globally. You can’t help but read these stories and be encouraged to pursue your own legacy that can be passed along to future generations.
