Asian Heritage Society of Manitoba acknowledge that our communities are located on Treaty 1 territory and that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of Anishinaabeg, Cree,Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.

Asian Heritage Month is an opportunity for us to learn more about the many achievements and contributions of Canadians of Asian heritage who, throughout our history, have done so much to make Canada the country we know and love.

The theme for Asian Heritage Month 2022 is, “Continuing a legacy of greatness”. This month is a reminder for all Canadians to come together to combat anti-Asian racism and discrimination in all its forms.

In 2022, the Asian Heritage Society of Manitoba will also be celebrating it’s 20th year of recognizing Asian Heritage in Canada. We plan to make May 2022 the best Asian Heritage Month yet, with a variety of performance and educational events that highlight the talents of the Asian communities in Manitoba. Community involvement is key to the success of our goals and we are reaching out to preferred businesses and organizations to be supporters and partners.

The Asian Heritage Society has successfully brought performers, artists, dancers, writers, musicians, and educators together – reaching approximately 3000 audience members and participants over the
course of the month. We are now celebrating virtually during the pandemic and have the potential to reach more!
