Our Story

Our members come from Cameroon – West Africa, precisely within the division of Fako in the South West Province of the country. Our primary motive for creating FACDA was to preserve our culture within the diversity of Canada and support the black minority population to integrate within Alberta – Canada. Though a small organization, we have partnered with government and private services to provide services that support our core mission as an organization.

What We Care For!

Cultural diversity and inclusivity
We promote our uniqueness and culture. We celebrate the diversity of Canada and encourage others to do so in different ways. Our culture is our language in supporting our other causes.
Poverty alleviation of minority groups in Alberta
We support initiatives and partner with government services to provide workshops that could lead to job acquisition, hence poverty alleviation.
Integration of minorities into Alberta- Canada
We work with partners to support access to services and the integration of minorities in Canada (especially the black population). We organize workshops and webinars that could support in different aspects of integration.
Mental health and supports to live a healthier life
We strongly believe that mental health matters. For us to stay productive and contribute to the development of our country Canada, we need to be healthy mentally. We come from a culture that requires more mental health education, sensitization and support.
