BLACK HISTORY MONTH
The month of February is a time to celebrate the many contributions of Black Canadians to our history, identity, and strength as a nation.
We are home to the largest multi-generational Black Community in Canada, making February a particularly special month here. Black History month recognizes the sacrifices and perseverance of racial equality in Canada.
Happy Black History Month!
