June 25 - July 1 is Somali Heritage Week

In the fall of 2020, the Province of Ontario announced the week of June 25 through July 1 would be proclaimed Somali Heritage Week. This recognizes the economic, political, social and cultural achievements and contributions of Somali Canadians in all aspects of communities across the province. 

The Somali community enriches our school communities and our city through partnership, leadership and influence. Somali Heritage Week allows us to turn our attention to the contributions and lived experiences of Somali people locally, nationally and globally.

This week-long period also covers several dates of significance in the history of the Somali community, and is also an opportunity to celebrate the rich culture and heritage of the Somali people and recognize the many contributions Somali Canadians have made here in Ontario.
