Asian Heritage Month is recognized formally throughout Canada through an official declaration that was signed in May 2002 (https://www.canada.ca/en/canadian-heritage/campaigns/asian-heritage-month/official-declaration.html).   Subsequently, the Province of Ontario passed the Asian Heritage Act (2005) (https://www.ontario.ca/laws/statute/05a10) , and the Toronto (TDSB) passed a motion to recognize Asian Heritage Month in April 2007 (https://www.tdsb.on.ca/Leadership/Boardroom/Agenda-Minutes/Type/M/Year/2007?Filename=70418.pdf) .
