 Somali Heritage Month:

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) proudly recognizes Somali Heritage Month during the month of October. The TDSB has been marking Somali Heritage Month since June 2016, and we continue to expand on the selected theme Educate. Elevate. Excel. 

In October 2020, the Government of Ontario proclaimed Somali Heritage Week Act, 2020 which will take place on June 25 through July 1.

“By proclaiming the week of June 25 through July 1 as Somali Heritage Week, the Province of Ontario recognizes the economic, political, social and cultural achievements and contributions of Somali Canadians in all aspects of Ontario society. Like many refugees and immigrants who have made Ontario their home, Somali Canadians are proud to be part of diverse communities across the province.”  


Please check out our website (mowat.ca) for more information on activities this month and follow SomaliHM@TDSB on Twitter.

Islamic Heritage Month:

Islamic Heritage Month


The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) proudly recognizes Islamic Heritage Month during the month of October since our Board of Trustees passed their motion on June 22, 2016. Our main theme for the month continues to be:  Reflect. Celebrate. Learn.

Canadian Islamic Heritage Month has been recognized across our nation since October 2007.  Subsequently, since November 2016, the province of Ontario established October as Islamic History Month through the Islamic Heritage Month Act, "proclaiming a month to be Islamic Heritage Month in Ontario will provide all Ontarians, both today and in future generations, with an opportunity to reflect, celebrate, and learn about the rich and longstanding Islamic history in the Province and the diverse roles and contributions of Muslim people in communities across Ontario. This new understanding will turn help combat anti-Islamic sentiment." 
 
The TDSB Islamic Heritage Month Volunteer Planning Committee initiated a poster created by photographs provided by author Richard A. Awid with the theme History of Early Canadian Muslims.

 
During the month of October several Islamic Heritage Month events are being organized for students, staff and TDSB community members. TDSB students - Grade 7-12 will be invited to attend a virtual event with Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir, former American Professional Basketball Player who challenged the International Basketball Federation when informed that she could not participate in the league while wearing a hijab. Bilqis will share the challenges she faced while trying to change this requirement for players.   
 
TDSB community members, students and staff will also be invited to a join a virtual event with Master Chef contestant Reem Ahmed and City TV Host Maleeha Sheikh in the upcoming weeks. We will learn about preparing a meal and we’ll hear a candid conversation about Islamophobia and what it is like to be Muslim in Canada.  Registration will be required and details will be shared soon.

Please check out TDSB and our website at mowat.ca for more information.

Recognition of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, Two-Spirit People – Oct. 4, 2021 Monday, October 4th, is an annual day to honour the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, 2SLGBTQQIA+ people and their families who mourn them. This is also a day to raise awareness of the disproportionately high rates of violence and victimization that Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people experience in Canada. The number of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people in Canada remain unknown due to decades of unreported or misreported cases and the failure of policing organizations to adequately investigate reported cases. Statistics show that violent crimes perpetrated against Indigenous women is almost triple that of non-Indigenous women and Indigenous women and girls are 12 times more likely to be murdered or reported missing than non-Indigenous women (Final Report MMIWG, 2020). Together we remember the hundreds of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, 2SLGBTQQIA+ people and stand in support and solidarity with their families to end the violence against Indigenous women, girls, and gender diverse people
