The input, participation and collaboration of every individual in the Armenian community is vital.   Your support – through volunteering or financial assistance, will ensure that we reach our common goals. The ANCT continues its political advocacy to further the issues important to Armenians in the Greater Toronto Area. Over the past couple months, we have had the opportunity to meet with several elected representatives and supporters of the Armenian Cause.

We also participated in Shelley Carol’s launch for her provincial Liberal nomination campaign, where ANCT was represented by Kirkor Chitilian.

In collaboration with the Canadian Museum of Human Rights, the ANCC co-organized the premiere of the new film about the Armenian Genocide “Acts of Conscience: Armin T. Wegner and the Armenian Genocide” in Toronto on October 13th, 2016.

The ANCT also participated in the annual fundraising reception hosted by the ANCC, held on October 21st at the Armenian Community Centre in Toronto.
