OUR MISSION STATEMENT
TO CONNECT | EDUCATE & ENRICH THE LIVES OF FELLOW BARBADIANS | CANADIANS & OTHER CARIBBEAN NATIONALS THROUGH KNOWLEDGE | PHILANTHROPY CARE & SUPPORT.
BRIDGE T.O. is a federal non-profit organization created and led by a group of first-generation Canadians of Barbadian parentage. We have a strong love and attachment to both countries and cultures that shaped us into who we are today and are therefore passionate about contributing to the well-being of both.
We work with and are heavily supported by the Barbados Ambassadors Of Canada, the Barbadian Consul General (both past and present) and the Consular representatives at The Consulate General of Barbados here in Toronto.
With the impending retirement of many members of the preceding Barbadian-Canadian organizations, there is a high demand for youthful Barbadian-Canadian leadership. We realized that the establishment of BRIDGE T.O. would prove to be a timely and welcomed addition to the Caribbean diaspora.
BRIDGE T.O. has formulated a brand that has resonated with our communities and has proven to be a successful way of spreading the word that we are here to help. It is a brand that people are proud to wear because they are supporting and representing their community in a trendy way.
Attending and hosting events that promote unity and progression within our communities.
