Raised in London, Ontario, Kathleen (Kay) Livingstone was one of Canada’s most prominent visionaries, activists, and humanitarians. In 1975, she launched the Congress of Black Women of Canada, a now-nationwide organization dedicated to the welfare of Black women and their families. Livingstone held important key positions in the United Nations, Heritage Ontario, the YWCA and Legal Aid. In 2011, she was named a Person of National Historic Significance by the Government of Canada.

Toronto-born Lincoln Alexander was the first Black Canadian to be elected to the House of Commons (1968), appointed to the federal Cabinet (1979), and named to a viceregal position in Canada, as Lieutenant Governor or Ontario (1985). He was a leader in the fight for racial equality, and a champion for justice, education, and heritage. In recognition of his accomplishments, he was invested into the Order of Canada and the Order of Ontario. Since 2015, January 21 has been celebrated as Lincoln Alexander Day across Canada.

Welcome to St. George, New Brunswick! Nicknamed “Granite Town,” the town of St. George was the centre of the regional granite industry from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. In fact, the historic building that houses the Post Office on Portage Street is a two-storey granite structure of Late Edwardian influence constructed in 1935-36 with local granite. Thanks for the amazing photo @506_photography!
