May is Asian Heritage Month  

Let’s recognize the many contributions that Canadians of Asian heritage have made and continue to make to Canada. There are many notable Asian Canadians whose families have come from all over East Asia, Southern Asia, Western, Central and Southeast Asia, bringing our society a rich cultural heritage representing many languages, ethnicities and religious traditions. Our Collection of resources features notable Canadians of Asian descent as well as the racism and hardships they have faced, all with the hope of creating a better Canada.
