“May is Asian Heritage Month, a chance to celebrate and reflect on the many contributions that Asian-Canadians make to Canada.
Asian arts, cuisine and culture have come to represent an integral part of Manitoba’s identity as a caring, inclusive and generous province.
I encourage Manitobans from all backgrounds to take part in local celebrations and learn more about Asian-Canadian culture and history.”
In 2002, the Government of Canada officially declared the month of May as Asian Heritage Month.
