The Black Canadian Network “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. They continuously showcase exceptional talents and entrepreneurship through seminars, conferences, and award ceremonies. These initiatives are focused on professionals, business owners, women, leaders, students, arts, and the entertainment industry.
