Asian Heritage Month


May is Asian Heritage Month in Canada, a time to reflect on and celebrate the contributions that Canadians of Asian descent have made and continue to make, to the growth and prosperity of Canada.
 
Diversity represents one of Canada’s greatest strengths, and we strive to ensure that all Canadians have the opportunity to reach their full potential and participate in Canada’s growth and prosperity.
 
Asian Heritage Month has been celebrated across Canada since the 1990s and offers all Canadians an opportunity to learn more about the history of Canadians of Asian descent and to celebrate their contributions.
