Today marks the first day of Black History Month, an opportunity to honour the legacy of Black people in Canada and their communities. The 2024 theme for Black History Month is: “Black Excellence: A Heritage to Celebrate; a Future to Build”. This theme celebrates the rich past and present contributions and accomplishments of Black people in Canada, while aspiring to embrace new opportunities for the future. ATU Local 113 is taking this opportunity to recognize and celebrate the achievements and contributions of Black people in Canada. We are dedicated to supporting and uplifting Black communities in Canada all year long.
