A Celebration of Excellence

Let’s Celebrate 19 Years Of Recognizing Our Community Achievers

The Ghanaian Canadian Achievement Awards (GCAA) is an initiative of the Ghanaian News Canada a Community Newspaper based in Toronto, Canada. Nineteen years ago, The Ghanaian News Canada launched a modest effort to recognize, showcase and celebrate the achievements of members in our communities across Canada who have and continue to excel in various discipline and fields of endeavor. This initiative was borne out of the conviction that many members of our community in Canada have been making strenuous efforts not only to achieve laurels for themselves and their community, but to the development and improvement of Canadian society as well.

To a very large extent, this innovation has been a great and a splashing success. Over the past nineteen years we have unearthed and showcased an average of thirty two high-flying achievers in various fields of endeavor from our community every year. That comes close to nearly six hundred and eighty persons to date. This year we will be showcasing close to thirty more achievers. These Achievement Awards have proven a number of important points: First, there are great talents in our community. Secondly, our community members are not just sitting on these talents; they are utilizing them to achieve results. Thirdly they have proven that our com-munity members are contributing significant efforts to the improvement of Canadian society.

Against the background of all the misinformation, myths and stereotypes that are bandied around about immigrants and immigrant communities; we are delighted to note that this events have achieved the purpose for which they were instituted: showcasing the best and brightest from our community in the larger Canadian context.

We depend on community members to nominate the known achievers in our community who are deserving of these awards. We therefore entreat community members to constantly be on the lookout for those that are achieving laurels in various aspects in our community and nominate them for the awards when the time comes.

The Ghanaian Community has come of age in Canada. Its contribution to the socio-economic development of the Canadian society cannot be underestimated. These are some of the areas 2019 recipients are being recog-nized: In the Categories of business, education, sports, medicine, music, Arts and Entertainment, Professional Excellence, Academic Excellence, Community Service, Cultural Promotion.

Ghanaian-Canadians have demonstrated excellence and therefore seeks to bring to the awareness of the Cana-dian public the successes and achievements of the Ghanaian Community in Canada.

It is the hope of the GCAA Committee that our community, our partners and well-wishers in the larger Canadi-an mosaic will continue to encourage and support our achievers to the highest recognition of selfless dedica-tion and contribution towards the betterment of our community in particular and Canadian society as a whole Finally we extend our heartfelt and warm congratulations to all our award recipients for this year. Do not rest on your oars. Keep pushing to make yourself, your community and our nation proud. We are proud of you! We salute all achievers in our community and congratulate the award recipients for the Year 2019. They de-serve our recognition, our praises and our support.
