May is Asian and South Asian Heritage Month

May is Asian Heritage Month and South Asian Heritage Month in Canada, and May 5th is South Asian Arrival Day. These dates provide opportunities to acknowledge the long and rich history of Asian and South Asian Canadians and the positive impacts they have within our communities.

The month of May provides an opportunity for staff, students and community members to remember, celebrate and educate future generations about Asian Canadians and the importance of their role in communities across our District, and across Canada.

In honoring Asian heritage month, we must also acknowledge the historic hardships Asian Canadians endured and the current day discrimination that they continue to face. It is important to integrate the lived experiences and perspectives of Asian Canadians into learning not just during this month, but all year round.
