Appointed to the Halton Regional Police Services Board by the Lieutenant Governor from 2006 to 2015, Andrew is proud to have been involved in a wide variety of policing and community-based programs and initiatives.

CCAH gives back to the community it cherishes by also raising funds for community initiatives. CCAH’s goals are to provide cultural education that develops an understanding and knowledge of other cultures through programs on culture, history, art, literature and music of Black, Caribbean and African cultures. CCAH also strives to promote mutual respect, acceptance, understandings of discrimination, and impact of racism. All activities are grounded in the CCAH core values – the four pillars of CCAH are Education, Culture, Community and Harmony.

Starting in the summer of 2020, CCAH, led by Chef Melani Bastians, took a bold new step by creating exciting online musical entertainment and distributing free meals, colouring books and games to families, Seniors, front-line workers, community housing and women’s’ shelters. This program has now distributed over 14, 571 meals. In essence on these days, with the help of community partners such as Chef Melani Bastians from Milton, and an army of volunteers, the program distributes hundreds of meals into the Halton community in the hopes of eradicating hunger.
