As the school year ends in a few weeks, let’s take a moment to appreciate the incredible dedication of our teachers and educators. Their tireless efforts shape the minds of our future leaders, artists, and innovators. 

Show your gratitude with a thoughtful gesture by choosing a gift from the Parents for Diversity Swag Shop. Whether it’s a gift card, a unique ‘Periodic Table of Black Canadians’ t-shirt or an inspiring ‘I am Still Learning’ mug, your support not only celebrates their commitment but also contributes to the advocacy for diversity and inclusion in education.

We had the opportunity to attend the opening of the Black History Exhibition last Saturday.

Upper Canada Village crafted a thoughtful and engaging response to critiques of the one-sided historical perspective portrayed for years at its living history installation.

We were enlightened, challenged and inspired by the images, artifacts and stories of the arrival and integration of Black people in Canada and Ontario. We were also drawn to the profiles of Black Canadians, their experiences of building lives, and of helping to build communities. 

Contributions to the exhibit, which has transformed the first floor of Chrysler Hall, were made by Black Canadian historians, educators, and members of the community. They’ve weaved together 400 years of historical events with accounts of individual achievements into a rich and vivid tapestry that adorns the living museum that is Upper Canada Village.

At Parents for Diversity, we honour and celebrate mothers from all backgrounds and family structures on this Mother’s Day. Motherhood takes many forms - biological mothers, adoptive mothers, stepmothers, foster mothers, grandmothers, and all those who nurture and care for children with a mother’s love.

To all the amazing mothers out there, thank you for your selflessness, strength, and dedication. You are the backbone of our families and communities. 

Happy Mother’s Day!
