About the Author
He was hired to be a teacher in a high school in Cross Lake by the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) in September 1969. He continued working for INAC in various capacities until his retirement as an Education Superintendent after 31 years of public service in October 2000.
After teaching in northern communities, Nityanand spent nine years in Thompson, Manitoba before moving to Winnipeg in 1985. His entire "Canadian life" has been spent in Manitoba. He was overwhelmed by the presence of a Hindu community in Winnipeg, and this motivated him to do volunteer work for the Hindu Society of Manitoba and to organize a workshop on Transcendental Meditation for the benefit of the federal school principals he used to supervise.
Nityanand Sharma has been a leader in the schools as a teacher and in the Education Office as an administrator and also a volunteer in the community. He loves Canada as his home.
