National Black Canadians Summits

Montréal 2024, en route!

“…We remain dedicated and actively mobilized for the upcoming 2024 Summit in Montreal, which will conclude the International Decade for People of African Descent (2015–2024) proclaimed by the United Nations.”


It all started in 2017 and we’re just getting started

The National Black Canadians Summit was created out of a call from emerging artists of African descent, from Halifax, Toronto, and Montreal, to confederate the efforts of Black individuals from across Canada, to see better outcomes for the community at large. From the first Summit in the Toronto public library in 2017 to our 2019 event in Ottawa in the presence of, our federal parliamentarians and lawmakers, through our series of virtual events in 2021 efforts amid of the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Black Canadians Summit is an essential and vigorous platform for reflection and co-creation.
