Ekiti Kete Canada Takes Action: Committee Formed to Address Toronto Refugee Crises

In response to the ongoing refugee crises in Toronto, a remarkable initiative has emerged from the Ekiti Kete community in Canada. Recognizing the pressing need to address the challenges faced by refugees in the city, The Association has taken a proactive step by raising a committee dedicated to tackling this humanitarian issue.

The refugee crises in Toronto have been a growing concern for some time, with an increasing number of people fleeing their countries due to conflict, persecution, and dire living conditions. The influx of refugees into the city has strained existing resources, making it difficult for the city authorities to fully address the needs of these vulnerable individuals and families.

The formation of the Ekiti Kete Canada committee is a testament to the strong sense of community and solidarity within the Ekiti Kete diaspora living in Canada. Ekiti Kete Canada is an organization comprising individuals from Ekiti State, Nigeria, who have united to promote their culture, provide support to one another, and contribute to the larger Canadian society as a charity organization.

The newly formed committee under the leadership of the president Barrister Anthony Adeshina aims to approach the refugee crises in Toronto with a comprehensive and compassionate strategy. Their mission is twofold:

  1. Needs Assessment and Advocacy: The committee will conduct a thorough needs assessment of the refugees in Toronto to understand the challenges they face. This assessment will help identify the specific areas where support is most urgently required. Subsequently, the committee will advocate on behalf of refugees to raise awareness about their plight and encourage appropriate governmental and non-governmental agencies to take necessary action.

  2. Resource Mobilization: Recognizing the strain on existing resources, Ekiti Kete Canada will mobilize its members and community networks to gather essential resources. These resources may include food and clothing support for refugee families. Additionally, the committee will explore fundraising opportunities to provide financial assistance where needed.

The formation of this committee reflects the true spirit of humanitarianism, where a group of individuals comes together, transcending geographical boundaries and cultural differences, to address a common cause. Ekiti Kete Canada's initiative is a shining example of how communities can play an active role in finding solutions to complex social issues.

ERE CANADA: A Movie with an Unfortunate Twist in TAMPAN Canada Chapter.


In the vast world of cinema, independent films have always held a special place. These movies often emerge as passion projects, driven by a dedicated team of individuals who pour their heart and soul into creating something remarkable. "ERE CANADA" is one such film that recently graced the screens of YouTube, produced by the selfless efforts of the TAMPAN Canada chapter members. However, the association's unfortunate loss of several members due to poor leadership has cast a shadow over this otherwise remarkable achievement.


The Birth of "ERE CANADA":

"ERE CANADA" is the brainchild of TAMPAN Canada, a branch of the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN). The movie serves as a testament to the talent and resilience of the Nigerian diaspora in Canada, who came together to create a project that showcased their cultural heritage and storytelling prowess.

Selfless Production:

The production of "ERE CANADA" stands as a shining example of selflessness and dedication. The members of TAMPAN Canada volunteered their time, skills, and resources to bring this project to fruition. From writing the script to handling the technical aspects of filming and directing, everyone involved in the movie displayed an unwavering commitment to their craft.

The Storyline and Themes:

"ERE CANADA" weaves a captivating narrative that explores the challenges faced by Nigerian immigrants in Canada. The movie delves into themes of identity, cultural assimilation, and the longing for a sense of belonging. With its rich storytelling and heartfelt performances, the film struck a chord with audiences, both within and beyond the Nigerian community.

Unfortunately, despite the critical success and positive reception of "ERE CANADA," the TAMPAN Canada chapter faced a severe setback due to internal issues.

The Dark Cloud of Poor Leadership:

In any organization, strong leadership is crucial for growth, unity, and success. Sadly, the TAMPAN Canada chapter was plagued by poor leadership, which resulted in the loss of several members. Dissatisfaction with the leadership style of the association's president, whose decisions were deemed arbitrary and self-serving, led to a wave of resignations. 


"ERE CANADA" is more than just a movie; it represents the resilience, creativity, and collective spirit of the Nigerian diaspora in Canada. Despite the unfortunate loss of members within the TAMPAN Canada chapter, the film itself remains a testament to the dedication and talent of those involved. Let us hope that this setback can serve as a catalyst for positive change within the association, ensuring that future endeavors receive the support and leadership they deserve.

All the best to TAMPAN Canada.
