Join Us For Our 20th Anniversary
anmd May is Asian Heritage Month in Canada, a time to reflect on and celebrate the contributions that Canadians of Asian origin continue to make, to the growth and prosperity of Canada.
Asian Heritage Month is an opportunity for all Canadians to learn more about the many achievements and contributions of Canadians of Asian descent who, throughout our history, have done so much to make Canada the amazing country we share today.
Let us celebrate in May the incredible diversity that is our strength.
Due to the current global pandemic and health advisories to not gather, all of our events are virutal. Visit our calendar page for links to the various events.
Asian Heritage Month has been celebrated across Canada since the 1990s. In May 2002, the Government of Canada signed an official declaration to designate May as Asian Heritage Month.
