This year, Canada History Week highlights the History of Black Achievement in Canada. The topics covered in this magazine and the accompanying videos only begin to scratch the surface of Black Canadian History, but we hope they can be used as a starting point to learn more about the impressive achievements of Black Canadians. The week aims to encourage Canadians to reflect upon and engage with Canada’s past, and in so doing, to better understand our diverse history and the role Black Canadians have had in shaping this country’s identity.
