African Heritage Month Fact
Black Canadians were proud to serve during times of war, even if they weren’t always wanted or accepted. Black soldiers helped defend Upper Canada against the Americans during the War of 1812. During World War 1, the first Black military unit was formed. They did not fight, but they helped by building roads and railways. In World War 2, black soldiers eventually got to serve alongside white soldiers.
