Congress of Black Women of Canada, Ontario Region

Let's make our community a better place!

Welome to the Congress of Black Women of Canada - Ontario Region

 

The Congress of Black Women of Canada is a national non-profit organization, started by Kay Livingstone in 1973.  The organization  is dedicated to improving the lives of all Black women and their families in their local and national communities.  The Congress of Black Women of Canada evolved from the Canadian Negro Women’s Association (CANEWA) which was founded in 1951 by a small group of Black women in Toronto.   In recognition of the significance of self respect and self esteem to Black people, CANEWA’s chief goal was to expand Black consciousness in Canada and beyond.

  

The Ontario regional body of the Congress of Black Women of Canada provides leadership and direction to create and maintain relationship among the Ontario chapters in their mission to address the social, economic and cultural issues and needs of Black Women. The Ontario region aims to provide organizational visibility, facilitate consistency of leadership and coordinate responses to the concerns and issues of all Ontario chapters. With a focus on the mission to assist Black women and their families, we collaborate to deliver programs and events that address child development, education, health, housing, pension, racism, sexism and human rights. Working within the framework of the mission and vision of the organization, each chapter is responsible for outreach as is relevant in their respective communities.


The regional organizational structure is Regional Representative, Alternate Regional Representative, Secretary and Treasurer.
