THE HISTORY OF GREEK HERITAGE MONTH
Presented by the Hellenic Canadian Congress of BC, the festival aims to share the rich Greek culture which spans 2500 years of history, including over 100 years of social and cultural contributions to the City of Vancouver. The Hellenic Canadian Congress of BC is an association of Greek organizations and communities representing Canadians of Hellenic heritage in the province of BC to various levels of government. It fosters education, communication, and cooperation between Hellenic Canadians and other ethnic groups, and promotes the development of just and equitable policies and legislation concerning all citizens. The Congress encourages and promotes the retention and development of Hellenism in BC within the multicultural context of Canada.
