Brampton, Canada



Media Release

Brampton, a city so diverse, dwelt by so many cultures from every corner of the world, also houses a big number of our very own Konkani Catholics living in harmony with other cultures providing a strong economic contribution to the city.

There are various registered Konkani associations in prominent cities of Canada like Mississauga, Scarborough, Ottawa, Vancouver etc., who organise many cultural events to the members of the associations providing a platform to meet and socialise with the community. These events are predominantly organised in cities where these organisations have been formed and active. Konkani Catholics of Brampton are usually left with choosing one of these cities and are divided in their choices losing an opportunity to meet other Konkani families of Brampton to cultivate a cultural bonding.

To overcome this void of Bramptoners and to harvest a fresh and much needed cultural bonding among the community, Konkani Catholics of Brampton (KCOB) was formed.  The vision is to bring cultural events, entertainment, platform to know fellow community members and more over to bring Mangalorean culture here in Brampton.

It is nice to know that a group is organising monti fest right here in Brampton. It feels like I am in Mangalore when I attend such religious and cultural events in this distant land. I will definitely attend this function. Thank you organisers and keep up the good work.
