International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia

MAY 17, 2022 -- May 17th is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. It is a day to celebrate gender and sexual diversity and to condemn the discrimination, violence and stigma that members of LGBTQ2S+ communities continue to experience in Canada and globally. This year’s theme is “Our Bodies, Our Lives, Our Rights,” a reminder that everyone should have the right to live free of homophobic, transphobic and biphobic discrimination.

May 17th is a symbolic date because on that day in 1990, the World Health Organization (WHO) removed homosexuality from a list of mental health disorders.

Early Childhood Education Month

MAY 3, 2022 -- May has been proclaimed Early Childhood Education Month in Saskatchewan. This month reminds us that positive experiences for young children continue to help them throughout their lives with quality early year's programs and initiatives.

May 11th is Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day. Thank you to all of the amazing and hard-working Early Childhood Educators who teach, support and build strong relationships with children and their families! You make a positive difference in the futures of our youngest students by helping to build the foundation for a successful education and the social, emotional, cognitive and physical wellbeing of children.

Asian Heritage Month

MAY 3, 2022 -- May is Asian Heritage Month. It is an opportunity for us to learn more about the many achievements and contributions of Canadians of Asian heritage who, throughout our history, have done so much to make Canada the country we know and love.

The theme for Asian Heritage Month 2022 is “Continuing a legacy of greatness.” This month is a reminder for all Canadians to come together to combat anti-Asian racism and discrimination in all its forms.

A live Facebook event celebrating the 20th anniversary of Asian Heritage Month will take place on May 9, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. (Eastern time).

Mental Health Week 2022

APRIL 29, 2022 -- This year, the Canadian Mental Health Association's Mental Health Week runs from May 2nd to 8th and will focus on the importance of empathy. CMHA is encouraging everyone to #GetReal about how to help each other. Be there for each other when times are hard and be ready to listen. You don't have to agree to understand, and you don't have to fix it to help.
