Celebrating Black History Month: Join Us in Honouring the Past and Shaping the Future

Black History Month is celebrated in Canada to recognize and honor the contributions and achievements of people of African and Caribbean descent to the country’s history, culture, and society. The observance serves to acknowledge the integral role that Black Canadians have played and continue to play in shaping the nation.

Black History Month provides an opportunity to highlight the experiences and struggles of Black Canadians throughout history, including their contributions to various fields such as politics, the arts, science, and social justice. It also serves as a platform for educating people about the history of Black communities in Canada, including their experiences with slavery, racial discrimination, and their ongoing fight for equality and social justice.

By celebrating Black History Month, Canada aims to promote inclusivity, diversity, and understanding among its citizens, and to ensure that the stories and achievements of Black Canadians are recognized and appreciated. It provides a platform for learning, reflection, and dialogue on the importance of respecting and celebrating the diversity of Canadian society.

As February approaches, we’re excited to invite you to join us in commemorating Black History Month—an opportunity to celebrate the rich heritage, achievements, and resilience of the Black community.

Love in Action Campaign 2023

Donate to The Love In Action Campaign 2023 to support those in most need of the services at the Essentials Market, a place that is focused on the wellness of each person. read the short brochure on areas that need love through your donations.

There are more community members coming to the Essentials Market because the exorbitant rise in the cost of living, including food and other life essentials, has been devastating. Bottom line: we need to keep our shelves filled with healthy food and other items, but it’s getting harder to do on our slim budget. Plus, there is a critical need for particular new equipment. 

Let us strengthen the community as we raise the goal of $54,950. For anyone to visit the Essentials Market, it takes a tremendous amount of courage. To cross the threshold of the Essentials Market is to be embraced and respected in love, joy, and community.
