African-Canadian Black History Month

Every year, Canadians are invited to participate in African-Canadian Black History Month festivities and events that honour the legacy of African-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.

Boundless, Rooted & Proud

For 2019, the theme of the Government of Canada’s Black History Month campaign was Black Canadian Youth: Boundless, Rooted and Proud. To learn more about this campaign, view videos and download the poster, click the button below.
