NACCA Community- https://www.naccacommunity.ca/black-owned-business.html
The Newmarket African Caribbean Canadian Association (NACCA) first began as an idea that Black and oppressed communities must have access to resources and opportunities for advancement. On May 5, 2018, a group of community members came together to discuss building a more inclusive and connected Newmarket community. One pivotal point in the discussion was around a concern for youth and how the organization can support a generational legacy of education, empowerment and unity that will foster pride in identity, culture and history for the people of African descent. We understood that there was also a need for rootedness and belonging and a firm understanding of the past to step boldly into the future. We concluded that growth and sustainability meant building strength, partnerships and intercultural understanding.
