Celebrating Ontario's Inaugural Hispanic Heritage Month

People from across Ontario celebrate, recognize and elevate the contributions of the Hispanic-Latino community.

Over the course of October, people from across Ontario participated in Hispanic Heritage Month Celebrations.

From Windsor to Thunder Bay, and from Timmins to Cornwall, the many diverse communities across our province came together for the first time to celebrate the incredible contributions that the Hispanic-Latino community has made and continues to make in every corner of our society.

I would first like to thank all the organizations, schools, cities and workplaces for recognizing the significant contributions of Hispanic-Latino Ontarians. In Davenport, I would like to thank Latinos Magazine, Collective 65 and EVOKE Contemporary, the Dpnchc Community Development & Health Promotion and Professor Margarita Feliciano for their contributions to the celebrations. Finally, I would like to recognize all the Members of Provincial Parliament for their unanimous approval of Bill 28: A Bill to Declare October as Hispanic Heritage Month.

I could not be more proud that Bill 28 was my first bill and it has been my honour to attend a great number of these celebrations across Ontario. I look forward to recognizing the contributions of Hispanic-Latino Ontarians again next year.

Muchas Gracias!
