Asian Heritage Act, 2005

S.O. 2005, CHAPTER 10

Consolidation Period: From June 13, 2005 to the e-Laws currency date.

No amendments.


In Ontario, diversity is our strength and immigrants from many Asian countries have chosen this great province to be their home.

Asia is the largest continent in the world both in terms of size and population. It includes people from many regions such as East Asia, South Asia, Central Asia and Southeastern Asia.

People from these regions who have immigrated here over the past 100 years and longer have significantly contributed in the settlement, growth and development of our province. Specifically, Asians have helped to shape Ontario culturally, economically and politically.

It is appropriate to recognize and pay tribute to the contributions that Asians have made and continue to make to the development and general welfare of Ontario.

Therefore, Her Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Ontario, enacts as follows:

Asian Heritage Month

1. The month of May in each year is proclaimed as Asian Heritage Month. 2005, c. 10, s. 1.

2. Omitted (provides for coming into force of provisions of this Act). 2005, c. 10, s. 2.

3. Omitted (enacts short title of this Act). 2005, c. 10, s. 3.
