The Grenadian Cultural Association of BC (GCABC) was incorporated on July 21, 1998. Its aims and objectives are:
Grenada was discovered 1498 by Christopher Columbus. It was named, "La Grenade" and also known as the "Isle of Spice". Grenada changed hands 14 times before coming under British rule until February 7, 1974 when it was granted nationhood. The year 2014 marks the 40th year of Grenada's Independence from Great Britain.
Grenada is known for its aromatic spices, white sandy beaches, friendly people and cultural festivals
For the past 16 years our Association has supported and received tremendous support from the Caribbean community and the community at large. By attending our fundraising events, you made it possible for us to meet some of our obligations to the charities we support locally, nationally and internationally. I would like to take his opportunity to thank you for your many years of assistance and we hope you would continue to support us in our future endeavours.

Saint Kitts and Nevis officially the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis, is an island country in the West Indies. Located in the Leeward Islands chain of the Lesser Antilles, it is the smallest sovereign state in the Western Hemisphere, in both area and population, as well as the world's smallest sovereign federation. The country is a Commonwealth Realm, with Elizabeth II as Queen and head of state. It is the only sovereign federation in the Caribbean.
The capital city is Basseterre, located on the larger island of Saint Kitts. Basseterre is also the main port for both passenger entry (via cruise ships) and cargo. The smaller island of Nevis lies approximately 3 km (2 mi) to the southeast of Saint Kitts, across a shallow channel called The Narrows.
The British dependency of Anguilla was historically also a part of this union, which was then known collectively as Saint Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla. However, Anguilla chose to secede from the union and remains a British overseas territory.
Saint Kitts and Nevis were among the first islands in the Caribbean to be colonised by Europeans. Saint Kitts was home to the first British and French Caribbean colonies, and thus has also been titled "The Mother Colony of the West Indies". It is also the most recent British territory in the Caribbean to become independent, gaining independence in 1983.
The Barbados Cultural Association of BC (BCABC) was formed when like-minded expatriates of Barbados addressed the absence of a formal forum for the exchange of cultural ideas among themselves, and with others who share an interest in the cultural affairs of Barbadians.
