Hispanic Heritage Month

October is Hispanic Heritage Month in Ontario. This month is an opportunity for staff, students and community members to recognize and celebrate the heritage, culture, achievements, and contributions of Hispanic-Canadians in communities across the OCDSB and Ontario.

Did you know there are nearly half a million first, second, and third generation Hispanic-Canadians currently living in Ontario? 

October is a significant month for the Hispanic community. Celebrations are held around the world, including: 

  • Hispanic Day (Dia de la Hispanidad)
  • Day of the Cultures (Dia de las Culturas)
  • Day of the Race (Dia de la Raza)
  • Day of Respect for Cultural Diversity (Dia del Respeto a la Diversidad Cultural)
  • Day of Indigenous Resistance (Dia de la Resistencia Indigena)

Throughout North America, Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15 to October 15.
