Jamaicans in Canada: When Ackee Meets Codfish records and shares the impact of Jamaicans in Canada over the centuries

As experts in providing package holidays to Jamaica, Kenwood Travel has joined the celebrations for Jamaica’s 50th anniversary of independence (1962 – 2012). Kenwood Travel talked to Kamala-Jean Gopie about Jamaicans in Canada: When Ackee Meets Codfish – a celebratory book which features profiles of 250 Jamaican-Canadians including doctors, lawyers, teachers, scientists, politicians and athletes.

According to Gopie, the book is to “record and share the impact of Jamaicans in Canada over the centuries.

“My hope is that the book will provide a more balanced portrayal Jamaicans in Canada to counteract the image presented in news headlines about the criminal activities of 'young punks'. We have a story to tell of immigration, adaptation, settlement, integration and contribution and it becomes our duty/responsibility to record for the benefit of our children and the wider Canadian public,” she added.
