TLN Media Group Celebrates Latin American Heritage Month This October with Original Documentary Presentations and Theatrical Premiere screenings, community partnerships and event coverage across Canada!

October is a significant month for Hispanic/Spanish-speaking communities worldwide, and the government of Canada has designated it as Latin American Heritage Month. As Canada's most influential multicultural media leader, TLN Media Group celebrates Latin American Heritage Month with a series of initiatives, special programming, and theatrical premiere screenings of original documentaries at Toronto's Latin American Film Festival (LATAFF). This celebration honors the rich tapestry of Latinx cultures, countries, and people for their significant social, economic, and political contributions to our nation.

TLN Media Group supports and showcases Canada's over 1.6 million Spanish-speaking communities year-round, a commitment we've upheld for nearly four decades. However, we acknowledge the significance of October in amplifying voices and shining a spotlight on the diverse aspects of Latino culture. This celebration enriches Canada's cultural mosaic, fostering opportunities for cross-cultural appreciation and understanding. The month-long parade of celebratory events features the 15th annual TLN Top 10 Most Influential Hispanic Canadians Award Ceremony.
