In 1995, after a motion by politician Jean Augustine, representing the riding of Etobicoke—Lakeshore in Ontario, Canada’s House of Commons officially recognized February as Black History Month.

During Black History Month, people in Canada celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Black people and their communities. Members of the Carleton community mark this month annually in a variety of ways.

While Black History Month is an important moment to mark annually, Carleton recognizes that Black inclusion must be an everyday, year-round priority.
