India Canada Association of Saskatchewan Inc. (ICA) was founded in 1975 by a small group of Indo-Canadians interested in hosting events in the community to celebrate East Indian culture and customs. Since then, ICA has grown into a leader among local multicultural groups.
Annual ICA programming attracts hundreds of participants from the broader community. Our coalition activities allow us to outreach to various parts of the multicultural sector and beyond.
Our community engagement efforts have increased exponentially over the years. This is most evident through the fundraising support we provide to countless deserving charities and grassroots projects through our Annual Supper Night. Now one of the most prestigious fundraisers in the province, this event drew over 500 participants in 2010. ICA is proud to have so far raised $400,000 for both local and international charities.
