(OTTAWA – November 10, 2021) – On Saturday, November 6, 2021, the Armenian National Committee of Canada (ANCC) convened its annual general meeting in Kingston, Ontario.
During the one-day meeting, the committee examined in detail the activities of the previous year and developed the working guidelines and specified its policy priorities for the current term.
The meeting analyzed and evaluated the extensive advocacy work carried out during and after last year’s war in the Republic of Artsakh, specifically focusing on the committee’s government relations and public relations efforts, expansion of its network of friends and supporters and securing further nationwide grassroots engagement.
Despite the catastrophic Artsakh war, the committee resolutely reaffirmed the importance of giving greater impetus to advocacy work across Canada, applauding the significant achievements over the course of the previous two years, while noting the many challenges ahead.
The meeting also held a detailed discussion on the forthcoming programs related to the development of Canada-Armenia relations, assistance to Javakhk, genocide remembrance, condemnation and education and combatting online hate and racism in Canada.
At the end of the meeting, the committee reaffirmed its commitment to the above-mentioned issues and its unwavering readiness to lead them to success.
The ANCC is the largest and the most influential Armenian-Canadian grassroots human rights organization. Working in coordination with a network of offices, chapters, and supporters throughout Canada and affiliated organizations around the world, the ANCC actively advances the concerns of the Armenian-Canadian community on a broad range of issues and works to eliminate abuses of human rights throughout Canada and the world.
