A CALL TO FELLOW NOVA SCOTIANS!
We’re gearing up for September – the second annual Nova Scotia Polish Heritage Month!
We’re putting a call out to businesses, organizations, municipalities, institutions and individuals. We’re inviting you to plan a little something to acknowledge the month. It can be simple and symbolic. You don’t have to be of Polish ancestry to be part of the month! Everyone is invited.
We can give you ideas, information and resources. Please contact me at [email protected] or 902-563-1226.
In August, we will release a consolidated calendar and list of activities on this site. So please be in touch if you’re planning something!
Nova Scotia Polish Heritage Month was designated by a resolution of the province’s House of Assembly for September of every year.
The first-ever Nova Scotia Polish Heritage Month was in 2020. It was a success despite the pandemic, with many on-line and physically distanced activities.
Lieutenant Governor Arthur LeBlanc paid tribute to generations of Polish Nova Scotians with a beautiful video.
The Polish community in our part of the country is among the oldest in Canada. It’s a warm, welcoming and inclusive community with unique traditions. We are grateful to share with others and to be enriched by neighbours of all ancestries and walks of life.
A heartfelt thanks to everyone. Dziekujemy serdecznie!
