About Us



The Christian Cultural Association of South Asians (CCASA) was established in 1995 to promote good relations between people of South Asian origin, and to improve both image and understanding between this Association and Canadian Society.  We are a non-religious, non-political, non-profit organization making strategic investments to build healthy, sustainable and caring communities in Canada.  We understand the need for creating a positive community experience which benefits both immigrants in particular and Canadian society in general.

We are a National Organization with Chapters throughout Canada
