Italian Heritage

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 a 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. Many activities are scheduled throughout Toronto to recognize the Italian heritage, including:

Italian Contemporary Film Festival, June 14 – 22, 2018

Taste of Little Italy, June 16 – 18, 2018
