Who we are.
WE PARTNER WITH PEOPLE THAT BELIEVE IN THE PROMISE OF BLACK CANADIANS
The Federation of Black Canadians is a national, non-profit organization, driven by organizations across the country that advances the social, economic, political and cultural interests of Canadians of African descent.
As a Pan-Canadian body, the FBC seeks to discuss the opportunities, contributions and challenges that exist for people of African descent nationally.
Black communities across Canada are diverse, resilient, creative, and multifaceted. For the first time in Canada’s history, there are over 1,000,000 Black Canadians who call Canada home. With that number projected to double by 2036, the Federation of Black Canadians is working hard to partner with people and organizations across Canada to advance the interests of Black Canadians. We want to ensure that as our communities grow, we unlock the opportunities that will help build a promising future, building on and celebrating our diverse heritages, histories, cultures, and contributions to Canada.
