Associate Professor Yew-Thong Leong Awarded Outstanding Asian Canadian Award

In celebration of Asian Heritage Month, we are excited to announce that associate professor Yew-Thong Leong has been awarded the Outstanding Asian Canadian Award for exemplary contribution to the greater Canadian community. Asian Heritage Month, which was officially adopted in the early 2000s in Canada after a proposed motion by Dr. Vivienne Poy, the first Senator of Asian descent in Canada, reflects on and celebrates the achievements of those with Asian heritage.  In 2016, the population of those of Asian descent in Canada was 16%. This number continues to grow today, especially in cities such as Toronto and in the Greater Toronto Area. With the rise of anti-Asian racism in recent years, Asian Heritage Month has become an important reminder to recognize and highlight the sacrifices of those of Asian descent in Canada.
