Black History Month celebrations

Every February, we are invited to participate in Black History Month to honour the legacy of black culture and history.

We also celebrate the many achievements and contributions of black Canadians who, throughout history, have done so much to make Canada the culturally diverse, compassionate and prosperous nation it is today. 

As part of Sportnet's celebration of Black History Month, an article on Angela James, Senior Sports Co-ordinator was featured.
