About the National Congress of Italian Canadians


Founded in 1974, the National Congress of Italian Canadians is an umbrella organization representing over l.3 million individuals of Italian origin living in Canada. The main objective of the Congress is to act as both a representative of, and advocate for the Italian Canadian community through a variety of activities, including presentations to all levels of government.
