ABOUT

BLACK CANADIAN NATIONAL CONFERENCE: A Multi-Panel Conference and rare opportunity to dialogue on leadership and economic empowerment. A meeting to unite, empower and network to forge better alliances with other leaders from all over Canada. Through our involvement we realized our community leaders, elected political leaders and those running for office, do not know each other, so we planned this conference to help bridge the gap. A non-partisan initiative to steer and inspire our National Leadership direction to the next level. Also "Wealth Creation" focused on how to work, fund & strategize together. A great opportunity to network and learn.

"ADDRESSING BLACK COMMUNITY ISSUES"

Hello Everyone, 
The entire Diversity Advancement Network, several community leaders and our partners are very excited about this great initiative geared towards encouraging people to participate in politics either as candidates or as a responsible individual. We do not support or endorse any party or candidate in the past, present or future. While publishing the Afro-Caribbean News in 2010 we had the opportunity to attend the Filipino Mayoral Forum, Chinese Mayoral Forum, and many others, but none was planned for the black community, so we took up the responsibility to organize one and we would be having a similar event in other cities. We are looking forward to a more inclusive city and country. 
 
Thank you

Yours Respectfully,

Paul Ade
Executive Director
Diversity Advancement Network
