The Durham District School Board and the Equity and Inclusive Education Department recognize and value all dimensions of diversity. As we continue to implement equitable principles and practices, it is important to acknowledge dates of significance that recognize groups that have historically been marginalized, diverse faith groups, creeds and organizations. The following dates highlight observances that are notable as we continue to polish the equity lens and broaden our educational focus; recognizing information from the United Nations (UN), the Federal Government of Canada, the Province of Ontario, the Interfaith Calendar and the Multifaith Council of Ontario.
