CEHA Celebrates Success of 4th Season of Egyptian Heritage Month
The Canadian Egyptian Heritage Association (CEHA), on Tuesday, organized the annual Appreciation Ceremony 2022 to honor those who took part in its fourth season of celebrating the Egyptian Heritage Month last July.
The event was attended by CEHA President, Dr. Magdy Nashat, MPP Sheref Sabawy, Magdy Yashoue, CEHA Media coordinator, Albert Fahmy, CEHA Public Relations Coordinator, Dr. Mohamed ElHalwagy President, Nile Association of Ontario, as well as leading figures from the Egyptian community and media men.
This year’s events witnessed the ceremony of raising the Egyptian flag outside the Ontario parliament for the fourth year in a row, along with a series of events in Egyptian restaurants, and the organization of the Egyptian Heritage Festival with the participation of a number of guests and artists from Egypt.
In 2019, MPP Sheref Sabawy submitted Bill 106 to the Parliament of Ontario, requesting to dedicate a month to celebrate the Egyptian community in Canada and their culture. Shortly afterward, Egyptian Heritage Month became a “permanent celebratory month for generations to come”.
Canadian Egyptian Heritage Association (CEHA) was founded in March 2019 as a non-profit organization with the purpose to promote and preserve the Egyptian heritage in Canada for our present and future generations to hold and cherish, and ensure sustainable celebration of Canadian Egyptian heritage from one generation to the next.
