Writer : Caribbean E-Magazine on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 | 4:45 PM

On Saturday October 6, The Commonwealth of Dominica, Ontario Association (CDOA) will celebrate Dominica's Independence and the Association's forty-second anniversary by hosting a cultural extravaganza for the 3rd Annual Miss Wob Dwiyet Canada Pageant. This will be the first of two events celebrating the Association's 42nd anniversary.

The event takes place at St. Clement of Ohrid Banquet Hall in Toronto at 6:30pm and will showcase Dominica’s cultural heritage, through traditional dances, folk songs and a colourful display of Dominica’s national dress the “Wob Dwiyet ".

The Miss Wob Dwiyet Canada Pageant will feature eight (8) young ladies of Dominican descent, ages 16 - 24, who will be judged on their display and knowledge of Dominica's culture and rich history. Contestants will prepare for the pageant through extended training in cultural dance and wardrobe, public speaking and media awareness under the guidance of Dominica's former National Queen, Paula DelSol.

Contestants will also promote the CDOA and volunteer at several community activities and events. The winner of the event will serve as a Youth Cultural Ambassador for Dominica.

The CDOA has for the past several years hosted alternate Miss Wob Dwiyet and Madam Wob Dwiyet pageants. At the CDOA's 3rd Annual Madam Wob Dwiyet Pageant last year, the winning title went to Juliana Gregoire who currently serves as the CDOA's Senior Cultural Ambassador.

As in the past years, this event with its long-standing history of success is expected to attract a large audience of Dominicans and Friends of Dominica.

The CDOA continues to grow in popularity and is considered one of Toronto's leading National Caribbean Associations. Throughout its forty-two (42) year history, the CDOA has promoted Dominica's culture, raised funds for health care services, awarded several academic scholarships and assisted farmers in Dominica after the destruction of Hurricane Dean. Recently, the CDOA began a series of wellness events for Seniors and will be undertaking Diabetes prevention initiatives later this year.

As the Commonwealth of Dominica, Ontario Association (CDOA) celebrates its 42nd anniversary this year; a deserving Dominican will be awarded the Dominican of Distinction Award for his/her contribution to advancement of Dominica’s image overseas, at the second event celebrating Dominica's Independence, later this year.

Officially called the Commonwealth of Dominica, the island is located in the centre of the Caribbean islands chain. It is known as the Nature Island of the Caribbean for its exceptional flora and fauna and boasts numerous rivers, mountains and extensive rain forests. Its extensive national parks system includes the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, recognized by the United Nations as a World Heritage site.

Within it, in the Valley of Desolation, lies the Boiling Lake - the second largest thermally-active lake in the world. Dominica is unique as home to the Carib Indians, the only surviving pre-Columbian population in the eastern Caribbean.
