African Canadian Heritage Month


Flyer for African Canadian Heritage Month 2022 - Text says 1995 Black History - February is African Canadian Heritage Month - Below this is the TCDSB logo - Below that is the bible quote I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you  from Exodus 3 14. In the Background, on to half of the poster are black and white relief photos of prominent African Canadians in low opacity. Above them is a minimalist lineart drawing of the continent of African is Black and Red colours. In the middle is a line like a heartbeat with a lineart of a heart in the middle.
Every February, the Toronto Catholic District School Board (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 Black History 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.
