The enormous Black Canadian Creator Directory--countless amazing creatives to discover!

·3 min read

TORONTO, Jan. 24, 2022 /CNW/ - Just in time for Black History Month, three Black Canadian creators—Casey Palmer, creator of Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad; Sherley Joseph, founder of The Chonilla Network and the Black Canadian Creators Facebook group, and Kaya Marriott, creator of Comfy Girl with Curls—have come together to put together a lengthy list of more than 400 Black Canadian bloggers, vloggers, social media influencers and podcasters to not only showcase the sheer amount of Black talent that we have north of the border, but also dispel the myth that Black Canadian creators are hard to find—we often just don't look hard enough.

Father to two. Husband to one. Second to none. Casey is a Canadian Dad from Toronto, Ontario who shares his fatherhood journey at Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad, one of the few places to find fatherhood content in Canada. His story because is different. He’s a Black father. He comes from a multiracial family. His family’s an urban family thriving in the city—not fleeing to the 'burbs like so many families before them, and so his content comes from a very unique place in Canada’s digital landscape!

With decades of experience creating content between them, Casey, Sherley and Kaya know that Canada's still a long way from seeing Black Canadians consistently included in everything from the media we consume to the ads we see in an organic and authentic way, often told that decision makers can't find creators who are the right fit for the stories that others want to tell. The Black Canadian Creator Directory aims to become a step in the right direction to ending that, searchable by niche, by name and by city for anyone to find local Black creators both easily and efficiently.

The Black Canadian Creator Directory is jointly hosted by Casey, Sherley and Kaya on their respective sites, each focusing on a different aspect of Black Canadian content culture:

  • Casey Palmer @ Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad on the importance of Black creators developing exposure and opportunities for themselves instead of waiting for others to do it for them,

  • Kaya Marriott @ Comfy Girl with Curls on the value of a list like the Black Canadian Creator Directory and how much it can do for the Black community, and

  • Sherley Joseph @ The Chonilla Network on what being a Black Canadian creator has been like without a common infrastructure to tie us all together and how much can change because of this list!
