Jamaican-Canadian Association

Jean Augustine discusses the Jamaican-Canadian Association button.

Well I thought this Jamaican Canadian Association one was interesting simply because JAC was one of the earliest island organizations to have a building or to own a building and also to have credit union and to have some activities join the economic activities. And so I think this was from one of the activities there; notice the flag of—the Canadian flag is there as well as their building and the hands reaching out to the community, I thought that was an important one to keep and I felt it was historical.
