A.C.Y.O.C. (Armenian Church Youth Organization of Canada) was originally organized in 1954 as the Armenian Church Youth organization of America, and it remained so until 1980, with the establishment of the Armenian diocese in Canada.

Since its inception, ACYOC has evolved to meet the needs of an ever-changing youth culture, yet it has stayed true to its founding principals.  Ours I an organization dedicated to fostering and developing a sense of community pride among young Canadian-Armenian men and women.  Through a variety of engaging social and cultural activities, we promote youth leadership within both the Armenian community and the greater community of Toronto.  We are the youth of today and leaders of tomorrows; we are the inheritors of an Armenian legacy and the architects of an Armenian destiny.
