The year 2012 marks the 50th (Golden) anniversary of the Jamaican Canadian Association (JCA). The JCA is one of the oldest immigrant organizations in Canada.
The Jamaican Canadian Association will host a Thanksgiving Celebration Service Sunday January 15, 2012, 2pm-4pm at the Jamaican Canadian Centre, 995 Arrow Road under the patronage of the Consul General of Jamaica, Mr. Seth George Ramocan. This Service of thanksgiving is the first celebration of JCA’s 50 years serving the community.
The Jamaican Canadian Association, founded in August 1962, is a non-profit, charitable organization that works to improve the quality of life of the African/ Caribbean community living in Canada by addressing its rapidly expanding and diverse social needs.
Our President Audrey Campbell states; “We are blessed to be celebrating the legacy of 50 years of community service and advocacy. The JCA was founded in September 1962, shortly after Jamaica gained independence from British rule. We are proud of our history and invite our members and the wider community to join with us in fellowship”
Our guest speaker will be Pastor Omar Palmer from the Meadowvale Seventh Day Adventist Church bringing us a message of maintained strength as we continue to effectively serve the community at large. The afternoon will also be filled with Praise & Worship and we will be graced with performances by Toronto’s anointed Minister Kay Morris, Patrick Blair, JCA Senior’s Choir and the Afrocentric School Choir.
