President’s Message

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Igbo Association Ottawa-Gatineau website. Here you will find the goals, mission and activities of the association, reflecting the pride and values of our people. It also conveys our mission and vision, to be a vibrant, cultural and caring association for Igbo people and her friends in Canada’s national capital region.

Our long term goal is to build a legacy and establish a strong presence of Igbo community and culture within Canada’s national capital and environ. To achieve these ideals, it is imperative that all persons of Igbo extraction and friends of Igbos work together and collaboratively to build, and nurture this progressive association that is the pride of our people.

My mission as President is to ensure that steady and measurable progress is continuously being made to achieve the goals set out by the association.

Regardless of the reason you decided to visit our website, I hope you will find what you are looking for and that you will take away an understanding and appreciation of our people and the values we share, and also learn more about our passion, and sense of community building we have committed to, in order to accomplish our mission. Please join us to build a vibrant Igbo community in the Ottawa capital region.

Thank you, and God bless.
