What is AfriCana?

AfriCana Village Development Corporation (AVDC) is a for profit company, and AfriCana Village & Museum (AVM) is a non- profit organization.
Our for profit/non profit hybrid social enterprise workers co-op organization is positioned as a community economic development initiative. AfriCana Village will be a unique public /private partnership dedicated to the economic and cultural development of African-Caribbean Canadian peoples. A Cultural “Heritage Tourism” destination that bring the warm hospitality and cultural experiences of the African Canadian-Caribbean Diaspora to Toronto and Canada. AfriCana Village will consist of a Caribbean/African- themed boutique hotel & spa, a cultural centre, convention centre, performing arts complex and African-Canadian History Museum that will showcase the rich tapestry of African-Canadian-Caribbean culture and history on the shores of Lake Ontario in the City of Toronto.

A significant percentage of AfriCana Village Development Corporation (AVDC) profits mandated by Corporate Bylaw must be re-invested back into the African- Canadian community through AfriCana Village & Museum.

Anchored by African‐Caribbean Canadian heritage, AfriCana will seek to leverage the symbiotic relationship between a tourism destination, and the preservation of African‐Canadian and Caribbean culture. AfriCana will also be a reflection and celebration of the contributions to Canadian society of African‐Canadians and diverse peoples of the Caribbean and African Diaspora.

Mission
To educate, celebrate, and promote African-Canadian history, culture, and heritage to Canadians and the global community through the building of an African-Canadian tourism destination and entertainment complex, thereby economically empowering the African-Canadian community.
