Black History Month 2022

Black History Month

The theme for Black History Month 2022 is February and Forever: Celebrating Black History today and every day!

Black History Month is an opportunity for Canadians to celebrate the legacy of Black Canadians, past and present.  In 1995, Jean Augustine-the first Black Canadian woman elected to parliament-championed legislation to recognize Black History Month in Canada.  The motion passed unanimously, and Black History Month was first celebrated in Canada in 1996.  In 2008, Senator Donald Oliver, the first black Canadian man appointed to the Senate, introduced a motion to have the Senate officially recognize February as Black History Month.  That motion was also unanimously approved.

Canadore is encouraging everyone to learn more about Black History, and celebrate the achievements and contributions of Black Canadians who have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse and prosperous nation.
