Welcome to the Jamaican (Ottawa) Community Association Inc. (JOCA) website. Here you will be able to find everything related to JOCA and our Jamaican community here in Ottawa.
We have a strong and vibrant community with a deep rooted history in Ottawa. It is filled with untapped potential waiting to be harnessed, not just for Jamaicans but the wider Black community. We want you to know that we are here for you, whether you’re a new immigrant just starting a new chapter in the nation’s capital or a long time Jamaica-Canadian living in Ottawa.
Check in often for news, updates on upcoming events, resources, and important information about our city of Ottawa.
Most of all thank you for your continued support, please don’t hesitate to get in contact if you have any questions or concerns.
