"Rhythms of the islands is an initiative of the St. Lucia Ottawa Association Youth Committee. Our participation in CARIVIBE is in keeping with our mandate to preserve our culture and heritage for future generations of St. Lucian descendants, to share our Caribbean culture with our wider Canadian community and to provide opportunities for our youth members to showcase their talents, take on leadership roles and build skills to foster their personal development in a positive way.
