We provide information for Southern Africans moving to the South Island of New Zealand. 

Christchurch is the major centre and we have a very active Southern African community group in this beautiful city. Other active groups are in Invergargill, Tauranga, Blenheim and Timaru. 

Our organisation is multiracial and multicultural including people from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana and Mozambique.


The Minister of Ethnic Affairs has extended an invitation to the national body and to the Canterbury African Council to attend a parliamentary function on Tuesday, 27 May 2014 in Wellington.

We invite suggestions from the Southern African Community regarding issues that the Southern African Community may want us to raise at the upcoming event.

Please forward your suggested issues to AJ Rossouw as Secretary General of the Canterbury African Council Inc. at by 30 April 2014.

If you email AJ your contact details, he will get in touch with you for further discussions.

We aim to coordinate any issues received from the Southern African Community in an attempt to put the issues on the table for discussion with the Honourable Minister Judith Collins.

See our Events page to see where you will meet new Southern Africans.  It is a great place to meet people that understand the questions that you have and can give you useful advise and pointers in your process into settling into this new country.
