February is Black History Month

Every February is recognized as Black History Month in Canada. It’s a time to celebrate Black culture and history and applaud the achievements and significant contributions Black Canadians have made to build Canada and to make this country the diverse, welcoming and strong nation it is today. Every February, Canadians are invited to participate in learning opportunities, festivities, and events that honour the legacy of Black Canadians, past and present.
