Heritage Skills Development Centre (HSDC) is a non-profit organization that was established in 1993 with a mission is to promote the health, social, cultural and economic self-sufficiency of new immigrants, at-risk and marginalized groups in the Greater Toronto Area. HSDC has planned, implemented, monitored and evaluated numerous successful projects over 24 years and achieved the desired results. We have an excellent track record of providing multiple services in our community which have empowered thousands of artists, new-comer, low-income, marginalized families and promoted their social, cultural and economic sufficiency. Additionally, through our community celebration festivals, we have helped to promote arts, culture, diversity to Ontario as well as fostered the self-sufficiency of local artists to enable them contribute to the Canadian economy. HSDC started the Scarborough Afro-Carib Fest (SACF) in 2011 as a way to engage local diverse artists and bring together various people from across Ontario to celebrate the arts, culture, and diversity in Scarborough. SACF has now become the fastest growing multicultural arts celebration festival in as it continues to promote artistic talents, social, cultural and economic development. Through this event, HSDC also provides a platform for emerging local artists to showcase their talent and gain widespread recognition. The festival also provides the opportunity for all guests.
