Celebrating Diversity – May

This is National Asian/Pacific Heritage Month in the U.S. and Canada

The Canadian Senate passed a motion in December 2001, designating May as Asian Heritage Month.  Canadians take part in festivities commemorating the legacy of Asian Canadians and their many contributions which have helped Canada become the multicultural and diverse nation it is today.

In the U.S. this is also National Older Peoples Month.
