Black History Month

February 9, 2023

February is Black History Month in Canada. A time to honour, commemorate and learn about the achievements and contributions of Black Canadians.

Here are a few ways to celebrate this month:

  • Support Black-owned businesses when choosing vendors for your firm/office/legal department.
  • Work with your Black employees (including resource groups/diversity councils if you have them) to plan, attend or sponsor events, webinars, etc.
  • Consider supporting anti-racism initiatives in your area.
  • Learn more about Black history, Black trailblazers and Black leaders in Alberta and Canada – read a book, listen to a podcast, watch a film.

Below are a few events, resources, as well as things to read, watch and listen to this Black History Month.
