"The seeds of a fruitful society are sown in the minds of its youth." -Jean Augustine, Former MP & Cabinet Minister, the first Black Canadian woman to serve as a federal Minister.


Since its inception, MBDA has played a role in advocating for Black families in Peel Region, particularly in the arena of education. It is important to note that in the mid 1980, MBDA successfully lobbied the Peel District School Board for Black History classes in Malton. Currently, MBDA is striving to ensure that youth in this community know that they have caring supportive mentors around them who will help to guide them along their life’s journey regardless of the path they take. There is someone available to help them navigate the sometimes complicated pathways and to help them understand that each day brings new hope. 

MBDA continues to work hard to achieve its goal of building strong families through education, culture and connections because families build the world.

We want to empower Black families through education, culture and social connections to then advocate for themselves and in turn help others.
