Every year, Canadians all over the country are invited to participate in Black History Month festivities and events that honour the legacy of Black Canadians, past and present.  This time of year is not only a time to rejoice in celebration, it is an opportunity to reflect on the virtues, contributions, collective strength and diversity that African Canadians continue to bring to our staff, our patients, our workplaces, and the fabric and culture of our local communities.
