Portuguese Heritage Month Is Now Official in Canada

Canada gives us another proof that it's one of the best and most inclusive places in the world to live. A bill has passed in the House of Commons to officially recognize Portuguese Heritage Month and Portugal Day.

Bill M-126 stated the following, "That, in the opinion of the House, the government should recognize the important contributions Canadian Portuguese have made to building Canada and to Canadian society in general, the cultural diversity of the Portuguese communities in Canada, and the importance of educating and reflecting upon Portuguese heritage and culture for future generations by declaring June 10 as Portugal Day and the month of June as Portuguese Heritage Month."

Congratulations to all Portuguese-Canadians.
