OCCA Communities Association is registered with Revenue Canada as a Charity Organization, effective September 21, 2011. We are a non-profit umbrella organization formed by a partnership of several multicultural communities in the Central Okanagan. Currently we have over 1000 members registered, the majority from Kelowna, West Kelowna, Peachland and Lake Country, yet encompassing almost 100 kilometers stretching from Peachland to Vernon. Membership details are provided below.
We promote mutual understanding, respect, acceptance, and harmony among diverse communities in the Okanagan, build partnerships with all levels of governments, and encourage and facilitate the full participation of immigrants from different origins in the social, cultural, and economic life of Canada. We envision an equitable society where immigrants and visible minorities are fully engaged and valued and reach our goal via the purposes of society:
