Connecting with Canadians

May is Asian Heritage Month in Canada

The Asian Heritage Month declaration is an appreciation of freedom and democracy that Canadians enjoy and shared the rich history of 

Asian-Canadians and their contributions to Canada. In May 2002, the Government of Canada signed an official declaration to designate May as Asian Heritage Month.

Our prime objective is to help Canada continue to be safe and secure place of harmony and peace by connecting people to each other and helping them lead meaningful and peaceful lives and to show our appreciation for Canada’s support and to celebrate the long and rich history of Asian Canadians and their contribution of the development of Canada and the world.
