May is Asian Heritage Month

Each year in May, York Catholic schools honour the legacy of Canadians of Asian Heritage, past and present, during Asian Heritage Month.

This is a time to celebrate the many achievements and contributions of people of Asian Heritage to the development and culture of Canada.  It is also an opportunity for the majority of Canadians to learn about the diverse stories and experiences of those of us who are Canadians of Asian Heritage. We are challenged to consider the vital role our Asian-Canadian communities have played as we have built a diverse and rich nation.

A poster is created each year that highlights a different group of Asian Canadians. This year’s poster recognizes Chinese-Canadians.
