Description[edit]

Describe here the activity including your goal, your detailed plan and the planned impact.

WikiProject Gurdwara aims to document all the Gurdwaras of the world and I have recently joined the project and have started documenting some nearby Gurdwaras of Surrey, British Columbia.

In this pilot project, I plan to document more Gurdwaras of British Columbia and Alberta states of British Columbia as a part of the WikiProject Gurdwara on Wikidata. Currently, only 7 Gurdwaras of Canada have items on Wikidata and not all of them have images on Commons. I have documented 3 out of these 7 Gurdwaras. Here is a query for all the Gurdwaras of Canada that are documented on Wikidata.

I plan to travel by road to various cities within BC and AL to photograph at-least 10 Gurdwaras and also collect other relevant information about them to create Wikidata items along with sub-categories under Category:Gurudwaras in Canada. I will be visiting cities such as Abbotsford (4 Gurdwaras), Kamloops (2 Gurdwaras), Calgary (4 Gurdwaras) and Edmonton (4 Gurdwaras).

Short-term goal is to increase visibility of Gurdwaras of Canada on both Wikimedia Commons as well as Wikidata.

Long-term goal will be to form partnerships with some of these Gurdwaras which can encourage and enable participation from the Canadian Punjabi community in Wikimedia projects.

I will be working with the larger Punjabi Wikimedia community to create articles about some of these Gurdwaras on English and Punjabi Wikipedias
