Asian Heritage Month

Asian Heritage Month


The theme for Asian Heritage Month 2021 is, "Recognition, Resilience, and Resolve" and is an opportunity for all Canadians to learn more about the many achievements and diverse stories of Canadians of Asian descent.  Stories which are rooted in resilience and perseverance. Their contributions throughout our history, have done so much to make Canada the amazing country we share today.

Throughout May, Hockey Canada will celebrate Asian Heritage Month with a series of content pieces highlighting the contributions and accomplishments of Asian Canadians. Video and written content will be featured at HockeyCanada.ca and across Hockey Canada’s social media platforms – TwitterInstagram and Facebook.
