Painting for our Caribbean Friends

More than 40 volunteers from District Council 46 and the community came together on the IUPAT’s Day of Action to paint the Jamaican Canadian Association building in Toronto. The association offers programs and services and a physical hub to improve the well‐ being and equity of Jamaican, Caribbean and African‐Canadian communities within the Greater Toronto Area.

The Jamaican Canadian Association was founded in 1962 by a group of Jamaicans living in Toronto. The impetus for the creation of the association was the emergence of Jamaica from colonial status to becoming an independent nation in August 1962.

Dulux Paints donated over 30 gallons of paint, materials and tools; United Rentals provided us with two scissor lifts.
