Our Mission is to provide a forum for Black Women to improve their lives by identifying and addressing issues which affect them, their families and their communities.
With or without assistance, the black woman manages to educate her children, tend to her sick and aged, labours both inside and outside her home.
She survives-and the race survives.

The Congress of Black Women of Canada chose the cactus as a symbol to show the strength and resiliency of Black women.
The Cactus is of a family of plants that thrives under the most adverse conditions. No matter how arid the soil, no matter that no care or attention is given, the cactus survives, multiplies, flowers and bears fruit.
A fitting symbol!
