On September 16, 2023, the Consulate of Mexico in Calgary will host the Mexican Flag-Raising Ceremony to celebrate Mexico's Independence Day. This event carries special significance as it marks the 213th Anniversary of Mexico's Independence, a milestone in the nation's rich history. A highlight of tomorrow's ceremony will be the presence of Minister Muhammad Yaseen, Alberta's Minister of Immigration and Multiculturalism. Minister Yaseen is set to make a historic announcement, officially declaring September as 'Mexico Heritage Month' in Alberta. This recognition underscores the profound cultural influence and contributions of the Mexican community within the province.

Additionally, Minister Yaseen will make a historic announcement, officially declaring September as ‘Mexico Heritage Month’ in the province of Alberta.
