CWN runs a small Centre, a place that’s “like home”, suggestive of the warmth and generosity of Caribbean folks. This small Centre represents the aspirations and interests of its members, the broader Caribbean community, their family, and their friends. It serves as a place for us to develop and grow our identity within the larger multicultural fabric, where we can live in that betwixt and between worlds of being Trinidadians, Grenadians, Guyanese, or Kittiitians, while simultaneously incorporating changes that make us proud Canadians. It is from this Centre, we produce a Carnival Band for Cariwest, organize mas camps or workshops that bring back experiences of “home”; host an annual Christmas Parang; read at least one book by a Caribbean author per year in our book club; and include Caribbean cooking in our Cooking and Culture Series.
