Asian Heritage Month is an opportunity for us to learn more about the achievements and contributions of Canadians of Asian descent who, throughout our history, have done so much to make Canada the amazing country we share today.

This year’s theme for Asian Heritage Month 2021 is, “Recognition, Resilience, and Resolve.” This embodies the myriad of sentiments that peoples of Asian descent in Canada have experienced and honours their diverse stories which are rooted in resilience and perseverance. It is also a call to action for all Canadians to come together to combat all forms of anti-Asian racism and discrimination. Let us celebrate the incredible diversity that is our strength and be resolute in our stand against all forms of anti-Asian racism and discrimination.
