African Chinese Heritage Month

A nation's treasure is in its scholars.

The Toronto District School Board is proud to recognize February as Chinese Heritage Month for the first time. During this month, we celebrate the energetic culture and traditions of the Chinese community with students, staff and community members.

The Chinese community is integral to the growth and success of the City of Toronto and Canada.  Members of the Chinese community represent approximately 10 percent of the total GTA population and forms its second largest visible minority group. As we celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary this year, Canadians remember and appreciate the Chinese workers who helped build the Canadian Pacific Railway that united our country.  

Chinese-Canadians will recognize the Lunar New Year starting on January 28 and will continue with celebrations throughout the month of February.

It sings because it has a song.
