About Us

The Nova Scotia - Cuba Association (NSCUBA) was established in 1989 by a group of students, professors, and activists following the highly successful conference on Cuba sponsored by the Center for Latin American & Caribbean Development (CELACAD), Saint Mary's University and Dalhousie University.
In 1997, NSCUBA became a Registered Society (#3004874), a move prompted by the growth of our work and a recognized need to distinguish itself from other organizations wishing to establish links with Cuba. Under this structure, NSCUBA operates with a Board of Directors and performs a yearly audit of the organization's finances.
Our mandate:
To promote education & advocacy on issues concerning Cuba, to facilitate cultural exchanges and to assist development projects. These objectives will be achieved through activities such as the publication of a newsletter, sponsorship of educational seminars & cultural events, co-sponsorship of events with other groups & organizations and facilitating public speaking opportunities for Cuban visitors.
NSCUBA members hold diverse perspectives on Cuba, yet stand united against the U.S. embargo / blockade. We believe Cuba has the right to sovereignty and self determination. New members are welcome.
