Who we are

Operation Black Vote Canada (OBVC) was established in 2004 as a nonprofit and multi-partisan organization that supports the election of Black people to public office.  We do this by educating, motivating and advocating for Black Canadians to participate in Canada’s government, agencies, boards, commissions, civil service and in Canada’s political process at all levels.

OBVC does not endorse candidates, nor do we advocate for one political party over another, instead we assist emerging Black professionals interested in a political career.

OBVC Monitors issues that interests and concerns the Black Canadian community and play a leading role in recommending solutions to the community and the government.

Our Mission

To simplify and demystify the path to public office and civic engagement.

Our Team

The OBVC is made up of dedicated volunteers willing to contribute their time, talent and resources to meet its mandate and mission.
