Welcome...Akwaaba!


Welcome to the official website of the Ghanaian Union of Manitoba Inc. (GUM).

Ghana, is a west African country, bounded on the north by Burkina Faso, on the east by Togo, on the south by the Atlantic Ocean, and on the west by Côte d'Ivoire. Formerly a British colony known as the Gold Coast, it was led to independence by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah on the 6th of March, 1957. Ghana became the first black nation in sub-Saharan Africa to achieve independence from colonial rule. The country is named after the ancient empire of Ghana, from which the ancestors of the inhabitants of the present country are thought to have migrated.

The Ghanaian Union of Manitoba Inc. is a non-profit organization that brings together Ghanaians residing in the province of Manitoba, Canada.

We hope you enjoy your visit.

  • To co-operate with other groups and organizations having similar aims and objectives.

  • To keep Ghanaians informed about events of national interest by keeping in touch with the Ghana High Commission in Ottawa as well as other Ghanaian organizations in Canada.

  • To mediate internal differences among community members (when approached by individuals concerned, whenever possible) so as to prevent unnecessary litigation.
