Your Caribbean Community in Oxford County

Connecting our Community

OCCA is a group of new-comers and longer term Oxford residents on a mission to connect the Caribbean and Afro-Canadian community through social gathering, training, entertainment, business, personal, development and more



A Bit of Background

In January 2020, a group of like-minded individuals gathered and brainstormed the idea of creating a community organization to connect residents of Afrocentric background and other cultures. Our Mission is to  inspire a healthier community by connecting people and creating opportunities for social and economic growth
