Happy & Prosperous New YearJPAA Canada wishes our Members, Old Boys and the Joe-Pete Family at large – a Happy New Year, keep well and good health, prosperity and much happiness.

2014 was an eventful year for us. We celebrated our 30th anniversary in Canada. It is a cause for celebration as 30 years as a joint organization is definitely something to be proud of in this day and age. While we faced a few challenges, they were easily overcome and all our events were well patronised. What more can we say?

JPAA Canada looks forward to a rewarding year ahead and would like to be in touch with you throughout next year. Please visit our site regularly and send us news for posting.

Three Sri Lankans are named in the pool of 18 – 14 players + 4 reserves. Ruvindu Gunasekera has been a regular opening bat for Canada in the last few years and a reliable spinner.
