Black History Month

February 2020

Black History Month
February 2020

About Black History Month During Black History Month, Canadians celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Black Canadians who, throughout history, have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate and prosperous nation it is today. Celebrations began in Canada during the early 1970s; the week became known as Black History Week, which expanded into Black History Month in 1976.
Recognizing Black History Month In December 1995, the House of Commons officially recognized February as Black History month in Canada, following a motion introduced by the Honourable Jean Augustine, the first Black Canadian woman elected to Parliament. The motion was carried unanimously by the House of Commons.
In February 2008, Senator Donald Olvier, the first Black man appointed to the Senate, introduced the Motion to Recognize Contributions of Black Canadians and February as Black History Month. It received unanimous approval and was adopted on March 4, 2008. The adoption of this motion completed Canada's parliamentary position on Black History Month.
