Who We Are:

Africa Live Canada is a youth driven not-for-profit organization that aims to positively impact Canadians of African descent in Ottawa. Established in 2016, this organization was created to address the needs of marginalized youth, recent immigrants, and other vulnerable communities in the Ottawa region. Africa Live Canada offers social programming geared toward empowerment and personal strength-building, based in cultural identity and integration, opportunity building and the exploration of creative expression. Africa Live Canada celebrates and promotes an inclusive and diverse blend of Canadian and African culture.

Africa Live Canada strives to be a place where people can come together to create, receive encouragement, support, and guidance, and find their place in the community. We aim to promote an inclusive and accepting environment where all abilities, genders, orientations, and identities are respected.
