An organization made for Canada's Indo-Caribbean community by Indo-Caribbean Canadians.
We are on a mission to build a premier organization dedicated to Canada’s Indo-Caribbean community.
The Indo-Caribbean Canadian Association ("ICCA") is an incorporated not-for-profit organization in Canada. The organization was launched on May 1st 2020, aligned with the annual South Asian Heritage Month in Ontario and Asian Heritage Month in Canada.
The organization was launched on the principles of:
Discover, educate, and amplify Indo-Caribbean culture and heritage
Identify and connect within the Indo-Caribbean Canadian community
Showcase and amplify Indo-Caribbean Canadian talent, professionals, and community success
Seek opportunities to engage and work with aligned organizations to enhance the service ecosystem for the community
In brief, our mandate was to connect, amplify, and serve Canada’s Indo-Caribbean community. We have delivered several community giving programs, including shipping barrels of donated books to children in Trinidad & and Tobago and Guyana, and co-lead a food drive of Caribbean food items for those in need. On an ongoing basis, we operate a youth mentorship program for boys and young men in the community. And we leverage opportunities to ensure our community is heard by and engaged with the government, this included our 2022 Respect Diwali campaign that received attention from national media outlets.
