Mark’s Corner

Welcome to our Website

Greetings to all!

Our Annual General Meeting was held on March 13th,  2021, and I was re-elected President of this great organization.  I would like to say a big thank you for your confidence in re-electing me and I look forward to the year ahead.  A new board was also elected for the next year.  Please join me in welcoming: 

  • Cheryl Phillips
  • Tonya Campbell
  • Reeva Goodman
  • David Vaughn
  • Joan Hinds
  • Wendy Joseph
  • Ruby Maynard


Myself and Cheryl Phillips will chair the Independence Event,  Wendy Joseph will work with Social Media, David Vaughn will work with Community Outreach and Ruby Maynard and Joan Hinds will work with Sponsorships. 

Our board brings a variety of professional competencies and will focus on: 

  • Building our Emergency Disaster & Relief Fund
  • Working closely with the Barbados Canada Foundation to support their scholarships and aid in sending medical equipment to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital
  • Working closely with Bridge TO


It is still a challenging time for everyone as the pandemic continues to wreak havoc across the world, but we will steer the course.   We have started our plans for Barbados’ 55th Year Independence Celebrations to be held late November.   Like last year, this event will be a virtual one and we will keep you posted as more details are forthcoming.

In the interim, we would love to hear from you.  If you have any suggestions or recommendations, for this event or others, or if you would like to join any of the committees please feel free to reach out to us at or


Warmest regards,

Mark Hoyte
