ABOUT US
The Black Canadian Network aka "Black Canadians" is an initiative of the Diversity Advancement Network, a non-profit organization with a national and global mandate to promote literacy, integration and economic empowerment of all people, especially minority groups and marginalized communities. We continuously showcase exceptional talents and entrepreneurship through our seminars, conferences and award ceremonies. These initiatives are focused on professionals, business owners, women, leaders, students, arts and the entertainment industry.

The Black Canadian Network is one of the largest network serving the black community in Canada. Originally launched in 2004 as a genuine idea to help others and officially launched in 2010 in Calgary and Toronto. "Black Canadians" as we are mostly called, is a unifying voice for the black community with a diverse reach to a multicultural Canada. We connect with hundreds of business owners, forward-thinking visionaries, community leaders, young professionals, and students. We are all about creating opportunities. As part of our vision, we foresee a Black Canadian community that is strong and economically independent.

We hope to better impact our community beyond Canada as we presently invest in new international chapters and forge alliances in the Caribbean, US, Europe and Africa to further break down barriers, advocate for more inclusion and open doors of opportunities to more people.
