CMC (Canadian Multicultural Council)-Asians in Ontario was formed in April 1998 to bring Asian Organizations together.
Today we have organizations from 21 Asian Countries. To celebrate Asian Heritage in the Month of May we decided to honour outstanding Asian Canadians in our Community.
Over the past ten years we have selected individuals who have made significant contribution in the Japanese Canadian Community. Past award recipients include David Suzuki and Raymond Moriyama.
