Uganda Canada Convention | Highlights from the Grand Finale Dinner Held at the Toronto Sheraton Center Hotel



On Sunday July 1st Canada Day weekend the Ugandan Community in Toronto held its first ever major Convention at the Toronto Sheraton Center Hotel — under the theme a bustling new investment frontier!

For a first in Canada’s largest city, the event was well received attracting a big delegation from Kampala that included the Chief Guest –  Speaker of Uganda’s Parliament the Rt. Hon. Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga,  a number of MPs from Uganda, Company CEOs, Government technocrats and business leaders from Uganda and Canada.

Below are a few highlights in pictures of what transpired at the Toronto Sheraton Center Hotel. Ugandan big name artists like Eddie Yawe, Iryn Namubiru, Canada’s breakout entertainers like Wonder Boi, Parvin Ahumuza, Jocelyn Keko, Celebrity Mcees Solomon Serwanja and North America’s leading DJs like David and Benazo were all present at the gala. Other featured gallery images show the Rt. Hon. Speakers visit to the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto the following day.

Despite the time constraint taken in processing travel visas for would be attendees and key moderators, many Ugandans were granted visas to participate in this year’s Uganda Canada Convention. Come Canada Day Weekend all roads will always be leading to Toronto for this annual community gate together! 

A special thank-you to the entire Convention organizing committee for job well done in the planning and execution of the event. Special recognition also goes to all the special partners and sponsors who contributed their financial support to help offset the convention costs.
