Every year, Canadians are invited to participate in Black History Month festivities and events that honour the legacy of black Canadians, past and present.
Canadians take this time to celebrate the many achievements and contributions of black Canadians who, throughout history, have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate and prosperous nation it is today. During Black History Month, Canadians can gain insight into the experiences of black Canadians and their vital role in the community.
