JPAA Canada – alive and well

Posted on 01 September 2017 by admin






Contrary to unfounded rumours floating around, the 34-year old Josephian-Peterite Alumni Association of Canada (JPAA Canada) is alive and well in Toronto. JPAA Canada is unique in that it is the only joint association for the Josephians and Peterites, in the world. JPAA Canada goes on record as the first Sri Lankan Schools Alumni Association to be formed in Canada in 1984.  The association was founded thanks to the pioneering efforts of a core group of Canadians of Sri Lankan origin who were domiciled in Canada since the early seventies. It is a member-driven association of Josephians and Peterites who have attended their alma mater for a minimum period of 365-days. St. Joseph's College and St. Peter's College are two leading Roman Catholic institutions located in Colombo.

"Our end objective is to ensure that we assist our alma mater as and when possible. There are many infrastructure projects in the pipeline at both schools (St. Joseph's College & St. Peter's College) and our mission is to contribute financially towards these projects. No funds are available for purchase of cricket balls or mechanized rollers and/or operating expenses for sports activities. Our main focus is to assist only infrastructure projects which the two rectors have priortised time and again", said a spokeman for JPAA Canada.

Current president of JPAA Canada Christy Joseph has made two changes in the executive committee for 2016/2017, effective immediately. Old Joe Roger Payoe has been appointed in place of Radley Perera as Honorary Treasurer of JPAA Canada. All correspondence to members in good standing as at 12/31/2016 shall be handled directly by President Christy Joseph.

All members are requested to renew their 2017 membership. Please contact President Christy Joseph or Aubrey Atton (Actg. General Secretary).

Thank you.
