COMMEMORATION OF
ETHNOCULTURAL COMMUNITIES' HISTORY



The Letter P arks Canada has made it a priority to commemorate sites, persons and events associated with ethnocultural communities other than the French and British, which are well-represented at present. Currently, about 65 sites, persons and events of national historic significance portray identifiable aspects of Canada's cultural diversity. Rev.

I have a great deal of satisfaction knowing black history is now protected like the history of the indigenous people, the British and the French. It gives me confidence that we are all embraced as members of the family that shaped our nation.
