About Us

The Canadian Association of Rwandan Youth (CARY) was formed by a group of young Rwandan professionals in 2011.  As a grassroots organization, CARY was created to support the needs of Rwandan youth in Ottawa, Ontario through the provision of responsive and inclusive programming. 


A second chapter of the association was formed in Toronto, Ontario in 2012 and incorporated as a non-profit on January 26, 2017. While helping Rwandan youth create life-long relationships through networking within their local communities and across the diaspora, CARY is committed to supporting and encouraging youth to reach their full potential.

CARY’s free tutoring support program is available to children and youth members from Grades 1-12.
