The Awareness Show is a new and an exciting talk show series created and filmed in Canada to highlight the lives and experiences of Africans throughout the diaspora with an emphasis on Africans living in Canada. We began with the desire to show the best, the brightest and the most intriguing personalities and topics.
We focus on controversial issues and lifestyle concerns that are unique to our demographic which reaches across continents and our ability to bring exciting news and cultural updates from an African perspective. Currently, there are no series or programs made in Canada that target and speak to the African community the way we do.
Africans and Afro-Caribbean. In recent years the African population in Canada has risen to approximately 3%. There are nearly 1 million Africans in Canada with over 500,000 living in Toronto alone.
Our Mission is to be a leading authority on the lifestyle concerns of Africans throughout the Diaspora and the go-to for entertainment and insightful information. Our Voices and opinions are credible, inspirational and compelling as our hosts are Canadians of African descent.
In 2006, Joan started a Non for profit Organization Company called Kemako Community Boarding House Inc., a company that offers new immigrant and abused women and their children with temporary accommodation when they first leave their abusive relationship. Joan specialize in teaching women to recognize inappropriate behavior, make informed choices to protect themselves, and help them to flee from abusive marriage/ relationship to a safer environment.
Also she offer them free legal services, one-on-one counseling, fresh perspectives and principles based on proven strategies that help move them from where they were to where they want to be. She organizes seminars all year long integrating new immigrant into the society and empowering women to step out of their comfort zone and make a difference in their lives, whether it means going back to school, start a small business or simply giving them the tools to find that great job they never thought they deserve or can get.
Joan is a motivational speaker who has spoken at schools, conferences, parties and seminars. As she goes about doing her public speaking she soon realized that people are better aware of their surrounding and community, lives are transformed, more relatable and better connection are made when each other’s stories are shared; thus, The Awareness Show was born to extend these stories to a larger target audience.
