Asian Heritage Month-Canadian Foundation for Asian Culture (Central Ontario) Inc.

Asian Heritage Month was unanimously adopted by the Senate through a motion by Asian Heritage Month-CFACI's founding patron, The Honourable Dr. Vivienne Poy. Representatives of the Parliament subsequently signed a declaration proclaiming Asian Heritage Month in May, 2002 following the passage of her motion in the Senate in December, 2001, recognizing the month of May as Asian Heritage Month. The declaration reads: “May is Asian Heritage Month. This acknowledges the long and rich history of Asian Canadians and their contributions to Canada. It also provides an opportunity for Canadians across the country to reflect on and celebrate the contributions of Canadians of Asian heritage to the growth and prosperity of Canada.” In 2005, The Government of Ontario made the same proclamation at Queen’s Park. Asian Heritage Month promotes Canada’s artistic diversity.
