Asian Heritage Month 2017

Settlement ISC Community

Do you know May is Asian Heritage Month in Canada? It is a time to acknowledge the long and rich history of Asian Canadians and their contributions to Canada.  Asian Heritage Month has been celebrated across Canada since the 1990s. In May 2012, the Government of Canada signed an official declaration to designate May as Asian Heritage Month. In 2017, Asian Heritage Month honors Asian Canadian artists and writers who have enriched Canadian arts and culture. For more information about Asian Heritage Month, please visit this link.
