CBWC | Waterloo



In 2001 the Chloe Callender Awards were established to recognize her exceptional lifetime of work as an educator, community advocate, and leadership trainer. Each September we have partnered with the Caribbean Canadian Association of Waterloo Region  to hold the Awards of Excellence where scholarships are awarded to local Black youth who have involved themselves in the Community and are pursuing post-secondary education in Canada. *To date, scholarships have been awarded to over 125 youth*

Black History Month

Annually we support Black History Events around the Region. In partnership with other organizations we not only celebrate Black History Month, we provide and support education, and advocacy for Black History worldwide. Black History Month is an opportunity to highlight, and also understand and talk about Black History throughout the year.

Ladies’ Tea

The Ladies’ Tea is held annually in June at the Historic Green Gables Guest House in Kitchener at which we recognise and honour the efforts of our members and local Black women. The Tea is now in it’s 27th year.
