25 de Abril Cultural Association

25 de Abril Cultural Association

Toronto’s Salgueiro Maia Nucleus was founded in September 1994

Our mission is to maintain the spirit of democracy. Because those born or who live in this democratic and free country have no idea what is it to live under a dictatorship – Carlos Morgadinho.

Since 1994, the Associação Cultural 25 de AbrilSalgueiro Maia of Toronto has been dedicated to commemorating the Carnation Revolution in Canada and educating young Portuguese-Canadians about this historic date in Portugal. Every year this association organizes visits by “April Captains” to Toronto where they visit schools and universities with significant Portuguese-Canadian student populations to talk about their memories and the meaning of the revolution.
