Meet The Board

  1. Camille Kerr
    President Camille was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario. Camille’s parents, Trinidadian immigrants, habitually taught her to honour and identify with their Trinidadian culture and family history. The traditional Caribbean values of family, identity, compassion and determination resonate with Camille and have become driving forces that navigate her daily life. These values are also key areas that both Camille and her husband, Mark, as conscientious parents, consistently instill in their five young children. Becoming a mother heightened Camille’s understanding that identity, belonging, accountability and philanthropy are fundamental characteristics in a successful community. These factors became the basic principles when she founded Caribbean Women’s Society; and subsequently its subsidiaries, Caribbean-Canadian Parents United and Caribbean-Canadian Chamber of Commerce & Community. Camille is a University of Toronto graduate with a BA Hon. in Sociology, Philosophy and Political Science, and thirteen years of Human Resources work experience.
