Black History Month provides the opportunity to learn, share and to celebrate the important contributions and vital role that Canadians of African descent have made to our community, province, country and the world.
For the first time the Town of Milton has proclaimed February as Black History Month with the official Proclamation read by Mayor Krantz at Town Hall on February 10th. The Town Hall event, which was preceded by a short reception and roundtable discussion at MP Adam van Koeverden’s community office, was well attended by Milton residents.
Milton resident Adejisola Atiba who played a lead role in speaking to the Town to initiate the proclamation was on hand to receive the official proclamation from the Town. “Here we are today, over 135,000 people, it’s diverse and I’m so happy we are doing this today because it shows that we are really focused on diversity and inclusion. I know this will be the beginning of wonderful things to come” said Atiba.
