Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Black History Month

Black Hisotry month poster

2016 marks the 20th anniversary since Black History Month was first officially celebrated in Canada.

The month-long celebration was formally recognized following a motion introduced in the House of Commons by the first black Canadian woman elected to Parliament, the Honourable Jean Augustine.

The motion was carried unanimously by the House of Commons in December 1995 and the Government of Canada officially celebrated Black History Month for the first time in 1996.

The library takes this time to celebrate the history and contributions of black Canadians who, have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate and prosperous nation it is today. During Black History Month, the libraries around the city present some amazing dispays that we can all come to check and gain insight into the experiences of black Canadians and their vital role in the community.
