Our Background and Mission
The Jamaican Canadian Association of Nurses (JCAN) is a charitable organization that was established in December 2014. The founding Board members came together with a mutual passion for addressing health in equity in Canada and Jamaica with a focus on building community capacity, leveraging student education and developing strong strategic partnerships. As a not-for-profit charitable organization, all proceeds from JCAN will be invested in promoting the mission of the organization.
“Growing up in a less privileged community has not only offered financial and academic challenges, but has also helped me realize the value of a university education. My lifelong dream of attending nursing school is moving forward, thanks to generous educational scholarships like yours.”
