Black History Month

ARCDO Celebrates Black History Month!

The motion to officially recognize February as Black History Month was introduced in the House of Commons in 1995 by the first Black woman elected to Parliament, the Honourable Jean Augustine. The Anti-Racism and Cultural Diversity Offices works with University partners to celebrate and recognize the change makers of African descent in Canadian history, who shaped the fabric of Canadian society and impacted innovation in all sectors including science, engineering, medicine, public health, education, politics, and the arts.
