Every year, Canadians are invited to participate in Black History Month festivities and events that honour the legacy of black Canadians, past and present. Canadians take this time to celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Canadians with African heritage who, throughout history, have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate and prosperous nation we know today. It is also an opportunity for all of us to learn about the wide range of African-Canadian experiences, including dealing with racism, and the vital role this community has played throughout our shared history.
Saskatchewan is now home to many people of African descent who have come from the United States, the Caribbean, many African countries and other parts of Canada. They are involved in all aspects of life. We continue to work towards full and equal integration.
