To ring in Canada’s sesquicentennial year, we celebrated the achievements of historical and contemporary Black Canadians who have made significant contributions to Canada. Some of Canada’s most beloved local luminaries and leaders shared stories about their personal and professional journeys while acknowledging the work and legacy of other trailblazing Black Canadians who came before them.
