Celebrate African Heritage Month 2020

In February, we come together in celebration of African Heritage Month 2020 and the provincial theme: The Ties that Bind: Faith, Family & Community. The theme recognizes the lineage of the African Nova Scotian community and the enduring ties African Nova Scotians and People of African Descent share through faith, family and community.

Be sure to check out the robust list of events planned for this month which are being promoted via our digital screens and the municipality’s social media platforms.

For their important contributions to the vibrancy of the Halifax region, I wish to express my sincere gratitude to our African Nova Scotian residents and all residents of African descent; the African Nova Scotian Affairs Integration Office (ANSAIO), Office of Diversity & Inclusion; business-unit partners; and our provincial counterparts. Special thanks, this month in particular, for the meaningful work planning and organizing such an inspiring line-up of African Heritage Month events and activities.

In the spirit of celebrating the accomplishments of African Nova Scotians and those of African Descent, I would like to also congratulate our most recent graduates of the Foundations for Aspiring Leaders Program.

Kudos to each of you for achieving this significant career milestone. We are grateful to have you all as part of our municipal team and excited to see how you will continue to apply your new skills.
