The Ontario Black History Society (OBHS) is a non-profit registered Canadian charity, dedicated to the study, preservation and promotion of Black History and heritage. The Society aims to foster public interest and encourage the interest of Black History through:
  • Recognition, preservation and promotion of the contributions of Black peoples and their collective histories through education, research and cooperation.
  • Sponsorship and support of educational conferences and exhibits in this field.

Publications: Our newsletter "Ontario Black History News" is published three times per year.
Research: We encourage the writing of community histories for future publications to ensure the preservation of our heritage.
