Canadians just completed another successful Black History Month all across the country. This is a testimony to the contribution of black Canadians to Canada’s history and culture. Starting in 1995, Canada’s government recognized the month of February to honor this vibrant and hardworking community. If you live here in Toronto, you might have planned road trips to these locations to learn more about African history and culture.
The Buxton National Historic Site and Museum in Chatham
Uncle Tom’s Cabin Historic Site in Dresden
There are other famous sites all over the country like The Black Cultural Center in Nova Scotia
As February draws to a close, spare a thought not only for black Canadians but also for the rich multicultural fabric of Canada. People of all races and cultures gather here and live in peace and harmony, unlike anywhere in the world.
