The Black Business and Professional Association is a non profit, charitable organization that addresses equity and opportunity for the Black community in business, employment, education and economic development.
The BBPA sponsors the annual Harry Jerome Awards, a national awards event that recognizes and honours excellence in achievement and supports higher education through the BBPA National Scholarship Fund.
The Harry Jerome Awards is a fundraiser that celebrates achievement in the Black community and supports the BBPA’s work in promoting the advancement of the Black-Canadian community, in the areas of Education, Economic & Entrepreneurial Development and Young Professional Training & Development.
As a non-profit organization, the BBPA needs to garner funds to support the BBPA National Scholarships, and deliver programs that support business and professional excellence, higher education and economic development.
This award ceremony is to showcase, recognize, and honor excellence within the African- Canadian community, to profile African Canadian Professionals, and to create a path to continue replicating these practices in the African-Canadian community.
