African Canadian Heritage Month


Every February, the TCDSB joins Canadians nation-wide in activities that honour the legacy of African Canadians, past and present. It is a time to learn more about these Canadian stories and the many important contributions African-Canadians have made to the settlement, growth and development of Ontario and Canada.


There are many individuals of African descent that have left a lasting impact on Canadian society, leading to change and growth. We see notable African Canadians as some of our greatest heroes - people we continue to look up to as great leaders and role models.

It was the Honourable Jean Augustine, one of the first black women elected to Canadian government who made the official motion declaring February as African Canadian Heritage Month in Canada. It is thanks to her efforts that we have an entire month dedicated to notable African Canadians.
This month, let us continue to celebrate our Canadian heroes and be reminded that through perseverance as can all achieve great things in our life.
