Since the inaugural Asian Heritage Month in 1993, cities across Canada have held annual festivities. In Manitoba, the Asian Heritage Society of Manitoba consisting of representatives from the Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Vietnamese, Indo-Chinese, Korean, Filipino organizations, have planned a variety of activities to share the Asian cultures with other Canadians.
