Community Cultural Organizations

Community Cultural Organizations

Poland, Hungary, Italy, Scotland, Russia, Greece, China, Wales, France, Germany, U.S.A., Trinidad, Norway, Britain, Finland, Ukraine, Ireland. Along with our rich first nations heritage, these are the places of origin for the majority of our first generation Canadians living in Wawa.

Much like the population of Canada, the citizens of Wawa represent a rich tapestry of interwoven cultures, traditions, languages, stories and ideologies. As a result, Wawa is also a town with a diverse number of community cultural organizations. These organizations represent Wawa’s unique cultural make-up as well as our focus on recreation, health and social support, community development, celebrations and spiritual strength.

This list of community cultural organizations in the Wawa area was compiled through community input during the Wawa Cultural Mapping project. This was a seven month program sponsored by the Town of Wawa and the Province of Ontario.
