Bill 103                                                        2010

An Act to proclaim the month of June Italian Heritage Month


Ontario is home to more than 1,350,000 Italian Canadians.  Since the 1880s, the Italian Canadian community has made and continues to make significant contributions to the growth and prosperity of the Province of Ontario.

By proclaiming the month of June as Italian Heritage Month, the Province of Ontario recognizes the important contributions immigrants have made in building Ontario’s communities and the economic, political, social and cultural achievements of Italian Canadians throughout the province.  Italian Heritage Month is an opportunity to remember, celebrate and educate future generations about Ontario’s rich history.

Therefore, Her Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Ontario, enacts as follows:

Italian Heritage Month

   1.  The month of June in each year is proclaimed as Italian Heritage Month.


   2.  This Act comes into force on the day it receives Royal Assent.

Short title

   3.  The short title of this Act is the Italian Heritage Month Act, 2010.



This Explanatory Note was written as a reader’s aid to Bill 103 and does not form part of the law.  Bill 103 has been enacted as Chapter 17 of the Statutes of Ontario, 2010.


The Bill proclaims the month of June in each year as Italian Heritage Month.
