The National Association of Bahamians in Canada (NABC) is a not-for-profit organization that was founded in 1980 as the Association of Bahamians in Canada (ABC). NABC hosts a variety of events, including social events, fundraisers, information sessions, disaster relief, etc. aimed at promoting Bahamian culture and supporting the Bahamian diaspora in Canada as well as Bahamians in the Bahamas. NABC is made up of Bahamians, their descendants, family members, friends and other supporters who wish to further our mission and objectives.
NABC is currently not a registered charity, however we have specific charitable causes, especially around disaster support and relief for Bahamians.
NABC is based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, but seeks to bring together Bahamians from all over Canada with a mix of Toronto-based events, local events in different parts of Canada and virtual events catering to anyone with an internet connection.
