Founded November 4th 1983, the Africa – Canada Chamber of Commerce and Industry was an initiative of three brave friends.
- Majambu Mbkay
- Tshibalabala Kangudi Fortunat (President 1983 to 2013)
- Dr. Thadd Muboyayi
Its founding president Mr. Kangudi was a Congolese Canadian entrepreneur. Due to his ailing health, activities of the chamber were halted. President Kangudi was called to the Lord on October, 2013.
It is all but natural that a good idea will stick for ever. In 2016, the transformation of this laudable dream was picked-up by a new wave of professionals:
- Roger Ekuh-Ngwese (President 2016 to present…)
- Henriette Mvondo
- Codou Sow
The new torch bearers are passionate in enhancing bilateral relationship between the continent of Africa and Canada.
Our vision is simple “Become the premium source of trade and investment information between African and Canadian business, both private and public.
