President's Message

Benvenuti to!

Dear Members,

For more than 70 years, CIBPA Toronto has risen to meet the opportunities within our Canadian Italian community. And it’s the strength of our community that has been essential to our success. Our membership brings together a broad range of entrepreneurs, business leaders and professionals with the goal of connecting people, nurturing relationships, and providing a network for collaboration and the exchange of ideas.

At the heart of our mission is our commitment to making a difference. It grounds all our activities and aspirations.

  • We are the opportunity for over 1,500,000 Canadian Italians.
  • We are the hope of thousands of students that strive to achieve more with our Education Fund.
  • We understand and advocate for business, education, health care and the arts.
  • We are the voice for our Canadian Italian community.

As we look toward the future, we are also excited to engage the next generation, including students and young professionals, to continue to the work of building a stronger, vibrant and more inclusive Canada, while maintaining the vision and contributions of those who led before us.

I am proud to serve as President of CIBPA Toronto and excited to be working with a dynamic group of volunteer board members representing a diverse scope of businesses within our community. I encourage and welcome your participation, involvement, and support. We look forward to working with you and supporting you to do business with our community members.

Yours truly,
Tony Cocuzzo
President, CIBPA Toronto
