Name of creator
The Council of Canadians of African and Caribbean Heritage (CCACH) was founded in January 1985 as the Council of Black Organizations (CBO). An umbrella organization with membership drawn from organizations that shared a common heritage, the Council’s mandate was to address the need for a united voice in the community to speak on matters that impacted them. Specifically, the organization focussed its efforts on supporting activities that enhance social, economic, and educational aspects of African and Caribbean heritage communities within Canada.
The Council of Black Organizations changed their name to the Council of Canadians of African and Caribbean Heritage in 1996 to better reflect their preference to identify as nationalities and not as racial groupings.
Jean Walrond-Patteron was the Council of Canadians of African and Caribbean Heritage’s secretary at the time of the donation.
