It all started in the early 1960’s when the call went out from Canada for skilled tradesmen and professionals. The Caribbean community answered and welders, mechanics, electricians, teachers, nurses etc. came. A large contingent settled in Hamilton and Brantford. The socializing centered around house parties and the dances at the old Jewish Community Centre. The group started to coalesce. In 1979 I had the pleasure of incorporating the Afro-Canadian Caribbean Association of Hamilton & District. The organization has seen some lean times but continues to grow. It provides a dynamic cultural home for many and a vibrant meeting place to exchange ideas and grow. Our law firm remains a backroom side to its governance. Congratulations to the Afro-Canadian Caribbean Association of Hamilton & District on its 40th anniversary. May you continue to grow and advance.
