The Ethiopian-Canadian Families Association was founded in 2012 with the purpose of:
1. connecting and supporting families with children of Ethiopian heritage, and
2. promoting awareness of Ethiopian culture in the greater Victoria region.
Our mission is to foster and support a balance of culture and values for families identifying as both Ethiopian and Canadian. We are working towards fulfilling this mission through a variety of programs and events, including E Camp, a summer soccer program, an annual Family Day party, and a scholarship program. We also support a school in Ethiopia.

The membership fee of $10/family is payable once a year. Families registering for E Camp may include the membership form and fee with their registrations.
