May is Asian Heritage Month
In May 2002, Canada officially declared May as Asian Heritage Month. Let's celebrate and reflect on the stories of Asian Canadians and how they contribute to the growth and prosperity of Canada.
History of Asian Migration in Nova Scotia and Canada
The history of Asian migration in Canada and Nova Scotia is long and complex dating back to the 18th century.
