Our History

The Federation of Sierra Leonean Communities of Canada was founded in 2018 in response to lack of collective action to address community issues and response to crisis situations in Sierra Leone. We aimed to raise our voices on behalf of the voiceless and our community. We aimed to mobilize human and financial resources to help people in need, strengthen community life and advance the unity, values, and shared purpose of the Sierra Leonean people in Canada, Sierra Leone, and around the world.
We welcome everyone, associations, organizations, or groups to help us touch countless lives and strenghten our community.
