Ottawa’s Caribbean Community

History and Profiles — Since 1955

Images of white sandy beaches, blue skies, palm trees, warm temperatures year-round, places of leisure and fun, and pulsating rhythms of reggae and soca music, radiate throughout each island in the Caribbean. Contrast this with Ottawa, one of the coldest cities in the world. 

Why would anyone wish to uproot themselves to resettle there?  Many native Caribbean people accepted this challenge  and in this collection tell their stories.

Late-K Lunacy
"A devastatingly truthful work of ecology-based fiction, and a gripping story of coming-of-age of a group of post-carbon millennials. Much more than an ecological dystopia, Late-K Lunacy is a splendid evocation of the world going into – and eventually coming out of – an ecological crisis, as Holling’s ecological cycles are characterized by both collapse and recovery, like a never- ending Möbius strip".-- Fikret Berkes, author of Sacred Ecology.
