Celtic Canadian Heritage Month
Celtic Canadian Heritage Month was introduced throughout the Toronto Catholic District School Board in 2008.

Irish immigration to Canada is remembered through several pivotal episodes in Canadian history: the 1820s – Peter Robinson ships; also the mid-1800s – the Irish potato Famine era when thousands of Irish arrived in Canada, along the Maritimes coasts, to Quebec and Toronto also. Later the 1860s.

Another wave of emigration to Toronto is remembered by today’s families whose parents or
grandparents came during the 1940s 50s and 60s. A great number of men worked on the Toronto Transit building the subway tunnels. And many more on construction sites building roads & railway.
