It is the vision of the Jamaica Association of Montreal to represent Jamaican business owners and professionals through JABOP.
JABOP is a committee of successful business owners and professionals that have volunteered their time, resources and knowledge. Our purpose is to assist the business sectors of our community, both Jamaican owned and other English Black business owners with their growth, sustainability and success.
Mandate of the Committee
There are two aspects of the mandate:
1. To identify, promote and encourage support of Jamaican business owners and professionals in the Greater Montreal region;
2. To assist in the development of these businesses through exposure to mentors and role models; thereby, giving them tools to succeed in their own business or profession.
