Can i wear my kirpan to school and in public places?


Yes. Multani v Commission Scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys:

  • Leading case on kirpan accommodation where Supreme Court of Canada found that prohibition against wearing a kirpan in school infringes Freedom of Religion and has allowed Sikhs to wear the kirpan in public places
  • Also found that the kirpan is a religious symbol and not classified as a weapon
