The Dufferin County Canadian Black Association was founded on June 3, 2020 by Shelburne resident Alethia O’Hara Stephenson. The impetus for the creation of the Association followed after many discussions with community members, political leaders and stakeholders about the growing Black population in Dufferin County (Blacks including those of African decedent and individuals from the Caribbean and Latin diaspora) and the need to provide a voice, advocacy, a safe space along with educational programs, support services, community outreach and scholarship opportunities benefiting families and businesses within Dufferin County.
