 ೨೦೧೬-೧೭ ನೇ ಸಾಲಿನ ಕನ್ನಡ ಸಂಘ ಟೊರೊಂಟೊ ಸಮಿತಿಯ ರಚನೆಗೆ ನೆರವಾದ ಎಲ್ಲ ಕನ್ನಡ ಕುಲ  ಬಾಂಧವರಿಗೆ ನನ್ನ ಅನಂತ ಧನ್ಯವಾದಗಳು ಮತ್ತು ಅಭಿನಂದನೆಗಳು.
 ಉತ್ಸಾಹಿ ಕನ್ನಡಿಗ ಕನ್ನಡತಿಯರನ್ನು ಒಳಗೊಂಡ ನಮ್ಮ ತಂಡ ಸೇವಾ ಮನೋಭಾವದಿಂದ ಒಗ್ಗೂಡಿ ಹೊಸ  ಹುಮ್ಮಸ್ಸಿನೊಂದಿಗೆ ಈ ಸಂಘದ ಸಾರಥ್ಯ ವಹಿಸಲು ಸಜ್ಜಾಗಿದೆ.
 ಚಿಣ್ಣರ, ನವ ತರುಣ ತರುಣಿಯರ, ಹಿರಿಯರ ಮತ್ತು ಸದಾಶಯ ಹೊಂದಿದವರೆಲ್ಲರಿಗೂ ಸಮನಾಗಿ ಸ್ಪಂದಿಸುವ  ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮಗಳನ್ನು ಆಯೋಜಿಸಲು ಚಿಂತನೆ ನಡೆಸಿದ್ದೇವೆ.
 ನಮ್ಮ ಹಿರಿಯರು ಈ ಸಂಘದ ಬೆನ್ನೆಲುಬಾಗಿ ನಿಂತು ನಿಸ್ವಾರ್ಥ ಸೇವೆ ಮತ್ತು ಅದಮ್ಯ ಸಹನೆಯಿಂದ KST  ಸೌಧದ ಭದ್ರ ಬುನಾದಿ ಹಾಕಿ ಕೊಟ್ಟಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಅವರ ಆಶೀರ್ವಾದ ಮತ್ತು ಸಹಕಾರ ಸದಾ ನಮ್ಮೊಂದಿಗೆ ಇರುವುದು  ನಮ್ಮೆಲ್ಲರ ಸೌಭಾಗ್ಯವೇ ಸರಿ. 
 ಪ್ರತಿಯೊಬ್ಬರು ತಮ್ಮ ಕುಟುಂಬ ಮತ್ತು ಸ್ನೇಹಿತರನ್ನು KST ಸಮಿತಿಯ ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮಗಳಿಗೆ ತಪ್ಪದೆ ಕರೆ ತನ್ನಿ.  ಕೆನಡಾ ದೇಶದ ಗಡಿನಾಡ ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರ ಮನೆ ಮನ ಬೆಳಗಲು ನೆರವಾಗಿ. ತಮ್ಮ ಸಲಹೆ. ವಿಮರ್ಶೆ ಮತ್ತು  ಸಹಾಯ  ಎಲ್ಲವು ನಮ್ಮ ಹೊಸ ತಂಡಕ್ಕೆ ಅತ್ಯವಶ್ಯಕ.
ಕೆನಡಾ ದೇಶಕ್ಕೆ ಹೊಸದಾಗಿ ಬಂದು ನೆಲೆಸಿರುವ ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರನ್ನು KST ಪರಿವಾರದೊಂದಿಗೆ ಹೆಣೆಯುವ ಮಹತ್ತರವಾದ ಕಾರ್ಯ ಪ್ರತಿ ವರ್ಷವೂ ಆಗಬೇಕಿದೆ. 
ಬನ್ನಿ, ಎಲ್ಲರು ಒಗ್ಗಟ್ಟಿನಿಂದ ದುಡಿದು 'ಕನ್ನಡ ಸಂಘ ಟೊರೊಂಟೊ' ವನ್ನು ನಗೆ, ನೆಮ್ಮದಿ ಮತ್ತು ಯಶಸ್ಸು ತುಂಬಿದ ನಂದಗೋಕುಲವಾಗಿಸೋಣ.
'ಒಮ್ಮನದಿಂದ ಎಲ್ಲರು ನುಡಿದರೆ, ನಡೆದರೆ, ದುಡಿದರೆ - ಜಗವನೆ ಗೆಲ್ಲುವೆವು'
ಸಿರಿಗನ್ನಡಂ ಗೆಲ್ಗೆ, ಸಿರಿಗನ್ನಡಂ ಬಾಳ್ಗೆ........
ಇಂತಿ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಪ್ರೀತಿಯ ಸೇವಕಿ,
ಉಷಾ ಜಯರಾಂ

Our team made up of passionate and dedicated Kannadigas, are brimming with new ideas to continue to make our KST a happy, harmonious and fun place to our members from all age groups.
Our elders have worked selflessly and tirelessly to give KST a strong foundation. We hope to create programs for them to involve and engage more actively, and continue to guide us.
We will certainly bring lot of entertaining cultural programs for the current
generation who are the pillars of KST today. We want to create special programs for our younger generation who are the future of KST.
In all, our team hopes to serve all three generations of Kannadigas equally and more actively. This can only be achieved with all your support and participation.
We request each one of you to attend and encourage all your Kannadiga friends to attend our events, spread the existence of KST to new immigrants. Let us join hands to welcome the new comers to be part of our growing Kannada community and make them feel at home. 
Our team believes, together we can make KST a place to forget our day to day stress and share fun time with one another.   
Let us enrich KST, enhance KST and carry on the Kannada legacy for
generations to enjoy.
Jai Karnataka Mathe, Sirigannadam Gelge.
Thank you
With Warm Regards,
Usha Jayaram

About Karnataka

Karnataka, the land of the Kannadigas, is a state in South West India. It was created on 1 November 1956, with the passing of the States Reorganisation Act. Originally known as the State of Mysore, it was renamed Karnataka in 1973.
Karnataka is bordered by the Arabian Sea to the west, Goa to the northwest, Maharashtra to the north, Andhra Pradesh to the east, Tamil Nadu to the southeast, and Kerala to the southwest. The state covers an area of 191,976 square kilometres (74,122 sq mi), or 5.83% of the total geographical area of India. It is the eighth largest Indian state by area, the ninth largest by population and comprises 30 districts. Kannada is the official and most widely spoken language.
The two main river systems of the state are Krishna and its tributaries (Bhima, Ghataprabha, Vedavati, Malaprabha, and Tungabhadra) in the north, and the Cauvery and its tributaries (Hemavati, Shimsha, Arkavathi, Lakshmana Thirtha and Kabini) in the south. Both these rivers flow eastward and fall into the Bay of Bengal.
Though several etymologies have been suggested for the name Karnataka, the generally accepted one is that Karnataka is derived from the Kannada words karu and nadu, meaning elevated land. Karu nadu may also be read as Karu (black) and nadu (region), as a reference to the black cotton soil found in the Bayaluseeme region of Karnataka. The British used the word Carnatic (sometimes Karnatak) to describe both sides of peninsular India, south of the Krishna River.
With an antiquity that dates to the paleolithic, Karnataka has also been home to some of the most powerful empires of ancient and medieval India. The philosophers and musical bards patronised by these empires launched socio-religious and literary movements which have endured to the present day. Karnataka has contributed significantly to both forms of Indian classical music, the Carnatic (Karnataka Music) and Hindustani traditions. Writers in the Kannada language have received the most number of Jnanpith awards in India. Bangalore is the capital city of the state and is at the forefront of the rapid economic and technological development that India is experiencing.
