The month of May is Asian Heritage Month which reminds us to honour and celebrate the contributions of Asian Canadians all over the country. It’s no secret that things have been particularly hard for Asians this past year, making this year’s AHM all that more important. One way that Asians have been expressing themselves and their creativity is through the TikTok platform. Asian TikTokers have created a community on the platform through dance, music, cuisine, business and everything in between.
By entertaining, inspiring and educating others, they have formed a vibrant community of supporters. From beauty and fashion to food and music, they continue to create some amazing content. In fact, there are many creators making content right here in our beloved Toronto. To make it easy for you to follow them and show your support, we’ve got a list of Asian TikTokers for you to check out.

TikTok is also taking it one step further by donating $275,000 USD to organizations across the US and Canada that fight for racial equality and provide resources to local API communities. Those in Canada include Elimin8hate and Indus Community Services.
