Biographie / Histoire administrative

The Jamaican Canadian Association, incorporated in 1962, provides social and cultural programmes for the Toronto community. They offer a wide range of services to support the diverse needs of the Jamaican, Caribbean and African Canadian communities in Toronto, and advocate on behalf of these communities on various economic, social, political, and educational issues. They provide a range of programs which include Parenting, Transition, Violence Against Women Programs, Caribbean Youth and Family Counseling, Newcomers Settlement Program and a Volunteer Program. They also work in partnership with other community based agencies on youth outreach. The Jamaican Canadian Association works to address the challenges faced by the Jamaican, Caribbean and African Canadian communities, through work both within the communities and addressing wider systemic structures of society.
