Greetings from the Ghanaian Canadians residing
in Hamilton Ontario, Canada
" One of our main goals as a community is to stay connected, link up with other Ghanaians and/or friends of Ghana, in Canada and Ghana, and support each other by mutually sharing ideas, talents and expertise.
As President, my vision is to help build a community where every member feels their voice, interests and concerns are heard, respected, and recognized. I am particularly interested in fostering a solid relationship with all people of Ghanaian descent – both young and old who live in Hamilton and its surrounding areas as well as the larger African diaspora who live in this area to ensure that their needs are being met adequately in our community. We are very proud to be Hamiltonians and collectively, we can work together to build a vibrant and successful city where we feel safe and comfortable to live in.
Our community is a diverse one – a beautiful mosaic: we have our churches, shops and other businesses, student and youth groups, professionals, artisans, homemakers etc.
This diversity serves to enrich our programs, activities, and discussions and this is what makes us who we are. We should have equal regard and respect for each and every sub-community and the units within them because together we stand strong. We have come a very long way from where we started, and we are stronger and more cohesive than ever before. We know there is still more work to be done and under my presidency, I am committed to seeing to it that we accomplish our goals and reach greater heights "
President, Ghana Association of Hamilton
