“We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves.” -- Galileo Galilei

The Toronto District School Board is proud to recognize June as Italian Heritage Month.     In June 2010, the Province passed the Italian Heritage Month Act, recognizing "the important contributions immigrants have made in building Ontario's communities and the economic, political, social and cultural achievements of Italian Canadians throughout the province. Italian Canadian immigrants have played an prominent role in supporting Canada's post-war boom and Toronto's emergence as a diverse, vibrant world-class city.  

During this month we celebrate the spirited culture and traditions of the Italian community with students, staff and community members of the Toronto District School Board and province of Ontario. 

Events scheduled throughout Toronto recognize the Italian heritage:

Evening of Italian Culture – June 1 , 2017

Italian Contemporary Film Festival – June 8 – 16, 2017

Taste of Little Italy – June 16 – 18, 2017
