Telelatino Network celebra el mes de la herencia hispana con iniciativas comunitarias y programación especial

Octubre es un mes significativo para las comunidades hispanas en todo el mundo. Telelatino Network, siendo la compañía de comunicaciones étnica más influyente de Canadá, ha anunciado un calendario de iniciativas y programación especial para el mes de octubre como reconocimiento al Mes de la Herencia Hispana en Canadá.

Aldo Di Felice, Presidente de Telelatino Network, declaró: "Estamos muy orgullosos de estar en nuestra cuarta década como una compañía de medios que fue fundada y ha sido parte del entramado de las comunidades latinas de Canadá de muchas maneras. Si bien empezamos como un único canal de televisión multilingüe, que ayudó principalmente a reconectar a los recién llegados con noticias, entretenimiento y deportes de sus países de origen. Ahora hemos crecido como lo han hecho las comunidades a las que servimos. Crecimos para servir a varias generaciones en diversos idiomas, en distintos canales de televisión y a través de varias plataformas. Estamos felizmente integrados en nuestras comunidades en Canadá aun cuando esas comunidades han evolucionado en diferentes direcciones. Y vemos como nuestro papel crece con todos ellos, eso incluye iniciativas que muestran varios aspectos de la cultura latina y proporcionan oportunidades para el reconocimiento y la comprensión de estas culturas".

Los Hispano-Canadienses representan la comunidad de lengua extranjera de más rápido crecimiento del país, con casi 2 millones de hispano hablantes de costa a costa. Haga clic aquí para obtener más información sobre el idioma español en Canadá.

Nuestra Historia: Hispanos en Canada (A TLN Studios Original) Sunday, October 15th at 8pm/et & Saturday, October 21st at 12 noon.
This TLN Studios original documentary traces the history, growth and, ultimately, the success of Canada's fastest growing community, Hispanics in Canada, from the 1960’s to present day. Told through the revealing personal accounts of five individuals, each from five different countries: Chile, El Salvador, Mexico, Colombia and Tanger, Morocco, this is a story of resilience and self-determination in the face of overwhelming challenges and obstacles, and of triumph and achievement in the building of a new life in Canada. From stories of persecution and political oppression to unique immigration experiences to a common connection to our country, Nuestra Historia: Hispanos en Canada, pays tribute to a thriving and growing community making a significant impact on Canada’s social, political and cultural identity.
Cronicas (A TLN Studios Original) Sunday, October 15th at 9pm/et & Saturday, October 21st at 1pm
Cronicas is a TLN Studios Original special hosted and produced by Montreal based TLN/Univision journalist Jorge Contreras.
This half-hour special features 2 stories:
  • El silencio de la frutas y verduras de Canada: Since 1974, there has been a program for Mexican foreign farmers who come to work in Canada. Today, migrant workers come from Guatemala, Honduras and other Caribbean countries. Cronicas takes an inside look at the lives of professionals, activists and workers claiming that their rights are being violated, and the response of those who defend this agricultural program. Is it right to believe that what we put on our plates (fruits and vegetables) is a new form of slavery?
  • Venezolanos: La nueva realidad del refugio en Canada: Venezuelans constitute the new wave of immigration asking for refugee status in Canada, a new reality for the citizens of the country of President Maduro. Families separated by distance as well as political view, Cronicas speaks to the leaders of this community-based in Toronto and Montreal revealing how Canada has included Venezuelan expats on an equal footing as Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Afghanistan and Syria.

Todo sobre el Mes de la Herencia Hispana en Canadá
Cada año, durante el mes de octubre, los pueblos de origen hispano en todo el mundo se unen y rinden homenaje a su cultura. Varias celebraciones se llevan a cabo en todo el mundo como el Día de la Hispanidad, el Día de las Culturas, el Día de la Raza, el Día del Respeto a la Diversidad Cultural, el Día de la Resistencia Indígena y la conmemoración del mes de la Herencia Hispana en América del Norte.

En 2014, la Ciudad de Toronto se unió a esta conmemoración y oficialmente nombró octubre como el mes de la Herencia Hispana. Desde 2015, al proclamar el mes de octubre como el mes de la Herencia Hispana en Ontario, la provincia reconoce las grandes contribuciones de los Hispano-Canadienses en nuestro tejido social, económico, político y multicultural. El mes de la Herencia Hispana es una oportunidad para recordar, celebrar y educar a las generaciones futuras sobre los logros y contribuciones excepcionales de la comunidad hispana en la provincia.
