Canada For Africa Group (CFA-CPA) is a network of women and men who aspire to be at the forefront of Canada’s leadership action in the partnership with the African continent. The Group advocates for Black Canadians’ contribution in delivering Canadian international development programs and activities in Africa.
CFA’s vision is to increase Canada’s leadership role on the African continent by leveraging black Canadian participation and expertise.
We work to promote women and youth empowerment, to encourage them in contributing to the development of the African continent.
We strive to represent in the world and where we live the values of diversity, inclusion, humanism and democracy that characterize Canada. These values are reflected in our internal governance and how we conduct business.
The Canada For Africa Group members have been occupied the whole summer 2020 putting together strategies to cope with COVID 19 crisis. From volunteering in food bank distribution, to supporting vulnerable groups, to helping international students or learning new skills, the African diaspora has been present in their respective communities, front and centre.
