‘Bella Coola 2 Africa’ goes national and becomes ‘Canadian Communities 4 Africa’

In the summer of 2012, following growing support from individuals and locations across Canada and overseas, the Board of Directors recommended a change in the charity’s name to ‘Canadian Communities 4 Africa Hope Society’ (CC4Africa Hope Society).

The change was approved by the membership in August 2012, and officially changed through BC Registries in November 2012.

The Society considers it of vital importance to continue to honour and acknowledge it’s establishment in Bella Coola (2006), and to recognize the importance of the community’s grass roots support as the foundation of our success.

The primary reason for the change is that as the Society’s influence broadens, the name change will facilitate fundraising opportunities in communities across Canada. Our new website may be found at www.cc4africa.ca.

Everything that BC2Africa/ CC4Africa has accomplished in the last seven years is a testament to the support of the people of Bella Coola, and we would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude.

CC4Africa Board of Directors – Dr. Nancy Anderson, Michel Bazille, Joan Cole, Pegge Stewart (Bella Coola, B.C.); Teresa Corbould (Kimberley, B.C.), BGen. (Ret’d) Andre Corbould (St. Albert, AB), LCol.(Ret’d) Ron Bragdon (Kingston, ON).
