I’ve been a supporter of CACD for many years. I want to congratulate Ron Cunningham on the great work he does with our youth over at Mississauga Valley. He really builds citizenship among our youth, he engages them, he keeps them active and puts them on the right track.
Bonnie Crombie, Mayor of Mississauga
CACD is truly a very special group of people and the work that you have taken on is truly an admirable task. We hope that even in some small way, that we can play a role in helping CACD raise funds and of course, create exposure for your cause.
Bob M. McKenna, Sports Publisher at Canadian Hockey Online
The leadership of CACD in making substantive differences in the lives of “at-risk” youth in Brampton, Mississauga, the City of Toronto and in Jamaica has been truly remarkable! Ron Cunningham and his CACD team provide innovative, dynamic programming that encourages “at-risk” young people to make positive life choices and become responsible and contributing citizens to society thereby making our communities safer for all.

CACD is a unique and very valuable organization in Mississauga which offers outstanding leadership development and engagement opportunities for positioning today’s youth to become tomorrow’s leaders.
Russ Pooley, Community Development Coordinator at Mississauga Recreation and Parks
The importance of CACD has been tremendous in my life. I lived in the Erindale neighborhood of Mississauga where every day I would see my old friends and neighborhood kids getting slipped into the dark side of life. It was while I was in Grade 9 when I first went to CACD. I remember Ron asking me to join the new ‘CACD Dance Program’. I had no dance experience but I was willing to give it a try so I joined it. I quickly found that dance relieved my stress and tension that I was facing at that time. And now after 3 years I am the head choreographer of the dance group!
