Featured News Item:    February is Black History Month
 
Black History Month, also known as African-American History Month in America, is an annual observance in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom for remembrance of important people and events in the history of the African diaspora. It is celebrated annually in the United States and Canada in February, and the United Kingdom in October.


Black History Month is a time to celebrate the achievements of those of black and African-Canadian descent and to acknowledge their contributions to the cultural, economic and political life of the country.

This month marks as a reminder that African-Canadians have been involved in struggles for equal opportunity and fair treatment, and challenges our major cities to address the causes and effects of racism and to build an inclusive society through events.

Canada is welcoming the public to celebrate, rejoice and explore the culture, traditions and heritage of African-Canadians.
