President's Message

Anita and Vivek Nayak
Namaskaru to our OKA family!

We are honoured to serve as Presidents of this community we have called family for the last 3 decades! This time last year, we were all coming to terms with the uncertainty and challenges that the pandemic was causing in our lives. As Canada continues to open up, we hope you are all starting to enjoy the many things that have been unavailable to us for the past 16 months.

Despite the pandemic, Surekha, Revi, and their team introduced many new concepts during their term - the virtual events, upscale website, free advertising for Konkani businesses, to name a few. We thank this EC team for their selfless endeavours and we know they will continue to support OKA for many years to come.

We are THRILLED to share OKA's new website with you all. Please do browse through the different sections – the artists' gallery, upcoming and past events, our entrepreneurs & business partners, seniors forum, and there is even more to come! Our heartfelt thanks to our web team who have been toiling long and hard to bring this to you -  Priyanka, Narsimh, Shraddha, Sid, and of course, Surekha for not only their innovative ideas but flawless execution as well!!

On behalf of the OKA EC, we request you to join us in our commitment to building a strong, united community.
