Asian Heritage Month is an opportunity for all Canadians to learn more about the many achievements and contributions of Canadians of Asian descent who, throughout our history, have done so much to make Canada the amazing country we share today. The theme for Asian Heritage Month 2020, "Asian Canadians: United in Diversity", was inspired by the long and rich history of these Canadians who continue, even today, to enrich our country and make it a more vibrant, inclusive and compassionate society. Let us celebrate in May the incredible diversity that is our strength.
