    Sea-going trade
    RBC Royal Bank of Canada's history in the Caribbean goes back a long way. In fact, the bank established branches in the Caribbean before some of Canada's western provinces. Strong maritime roots influenced its representation throughout the region. Its commercial relations began with a group of merchants from Halifax, Nova Scotia, who formed the Merchant's Bank in 1864, and were engaged in the thriving sea-going trade between Halifax and the West Indies. In those days Canadian southbound ships carried mainly flour, codfish and timber, returning north with their cargoes of sugar, rum, cotton and spices. Through branches established in all major trade centres in the Caribbean, RBC offered valuable facilities for promoting trade. Early days
    The bank's first venture south was Bermuda in 1882 followed by Cuba in 1899. By 1914, the bank's international network included Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Trinidad, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Barbados, British Honduras (now Belize) and Grenada. In that same year, RBC purchased the British Guiana Bank that had opened in 1836. By 1984 the bank had opened a total of 15 branches in Guyana (formerly British Guiana) but in November 1984 RBC ceased to operate there. The
    Bio-diversity Centre in Georgetown, created to study Guyana's largely intact rain forest, was built with funds from RBC's operations in Guyana, since foreign exchange restrictions made it impossible to take them out of the country.

    Saint Lucia Geography
    Sources: The Library of Congress Country Studies
      Back to Saint Lucia Index St. Lucia is one of many small land masses composing the insular group known as the Windward Islands (see fig. , Caribbean Regional Map). Unlike large limestone areas such as Florida, Cuba, and the Yucatan Peninsula, or the Bahamas, which is a small island group composed of coral and sand, St. Lucia is a typical Windward Island formation of volcanic rock that came into existence long after much of the region had already been formed. St. Lucia's physical features are strikingly beautiful. Dominated by high peaks and rain forests in the interior, the 616- square-kilometer island is known for the twin peaks of Gros Piton and Petit Piton on the southwestern coast, its soft sandy beaches, and its magnificent natural harbors (see fig. , Map of St. Lucia). Mount Gimie, the highest peak, is located in the central mountain range and rises to 958 meters above sea level, a contrast that is also evident in the abrupt climatic transition from coastal to inland areas. The steep terrain also accentuates the many rivers that flow from central St. Lucia to the Caribbean. Fertile land holdings, which support banana farming, are scattered throughout the island. St. Lucia has a tropical, humid climate moderated by northeast trade winds that allow for pleasant year-round conditions. Mean annual temperatures range from 26o C to 32o C at sea level and drop to an average of 13o C in the mountain peaks. The abundant annual rainfall accumulates to approximately 200 centimeters, with most precipitation occurring during the June to December wet season. Hurricanes are the most severe climatic disturbance in this area and have been known to cause extensive damage. Although St. Lucia has historically been spared from serious hurricane destruction, Hurricane Allen decimated the agricultural sector and claimed nine lives in 1980.

    In the 1960s at a time when the impact of development activities on Caribbean environments was beginning to be visible, intrusive and troublesome, a number of groups and individuals concerned with the conservation of the region's natural resources and cultural heritage, conceived the idea for the formation of a conservation group for the Caribbean region. With support from Laurence Rockefeller, who in the 1950's had purchased two-thirds of St. John (to the US Virgin Islands) and donated it for establishment of a National Park, a regional survey on conservation problems was carried out by Dr Carl Carlozzi of the University of Massachusetts. One of the first organizations to take concrete action to address on a regional basis the environmental problems brought by development, was the research wing of the then College of the Virgin Islands the Caribbean Research Institute. Established in October 1965, one of the CRI's first significant projects was the joint sponsorship of the Eastern Caribbean Conservation Conference on St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands along with the American Conservation Association, headed by Mr Rockefeller, and the Government of the U.S.V.I. The conference focused on the Carlozzi findings and was titled "Conservation in the Eastern Caribbean." It generated a sequence of activities throughout the region relating to conservation programmes and environmental activities. Particularly it recognized the need for international planning and cooperation in meeting the conservation requirements of the region and concluded its deliberations by recommending the establishment of a regional body to help meet these needs.

    I must begin by expressing my distinct pleasure at being given this opportunity to speak with you - the key members of the St. Lucian business community - about one of the most ambitious initiatives undertaken in our Region – the establishment of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME).
    It is therefore my hope that I will not only shed light on the subject but will also advance the ongoing Regional dialogue on this issue.
    Let me pause here, to pay tribute to the leadership and members of the St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce and the entire business community. Your efforts have seen excellent results in a number of areas of your economy, even as you grapple with the challenges of globalisation. Your interest in the subject of the CSME is indicative of your realisation that new times call for new solutions and that your minds are open to the new possibilities of the CSME.
    Within the last 30 years, we have witnessed the evolution of the Region’s efforts towards economic integration.

Site Help By Janelle Charles August 18, 1998 - A newly launched volume on the General History of the Caribbean is already receiving a warm reception from international students and educational officials. The book "The slave societies of the Caribbean "- is the third of six volumes in an initiative led by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to re-write the Caribbean’s history form a regional perspective. "Sales according to Macmillan have been good among universities around every part of the world. I think that augers well for the other volumes and speaks to the interest that the world has in our region," The General History of the Caribbean project was launched here over the weekend with the publication on the slave societies of the Caribbean - a narrative that is being viewed as authentically Caribbean. The examination of the various themes in the region has been done from a European perspective in the past and may not have been a reflection of true Caribbean history. The mandate given to the editors and authors was to change that perspective to look at that history from the inside, examining areas which were not explored comprehensively in previous histories.

Branford IT has been 26 years since St. Lucia attained Independence and embarked on the course of charting its own destiny, economic, political and social. Our concern here is with the area of social development, and in particular, sports. During that period, the question has been asked with unfailing regularity – How far have we progressed in the development of sports on this island? As an independent country, the doors have been opened for St. Lucian sporting authorities and athletes to gain membership and participate in most major regional and international organizations and competitions. We have been accepted as members of the World Football Association, the International Olympics Committee, International Martial Arts movements and many others. Our administrators, coaches, athletes and, more significantly, our Government have access to all the benefits accruing from Independence – if we can qualify by virtue of our expertise.

One wave, Comprising of the current day Zulu, Xhosa and Swazi people. The shangana-Tsonga, Chopi and others, followed the coastal plain down the eastern seaboard of Africa.
    The Nguni first migrated into the our region from the north and north west, and send away in their separate "clans" to the localities where many of them were still to be found at the beginning of the nineteenth century .
    The "Golden Age" of East Nguni history was when the people lived in peace and stability in many small scale clans under good hearted rule.
    The name "Nguni", is one of times gone by. The people of Zululand, Natal and the Eastern Cape distinguished themselves from the other two types around them, that's from the Sutu and the Tonga people. There is also three related families.

    The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Rugby Union Football Club (SVGRUFC) came into existence on Sunday 18 th January 1998, when the first game of touch rugby, was played at the Scion Hill playing field using four traffic cones as pitch markers. This all came about following a chance conversation between the incumbent President and the girlfriend (fiancée) of Kirk Hobson Garcia at a Christmas party. She had complained bitterly how she missed “her man” being able to do those “silly man things” on a Sunday morning. This stimulated an expatriate Englishman -Mr. John Townend- to return from his Christmas 1997 vacation with plenty of enthusiasm and two (rugby) balls. He contacted two Antipodean expatriates: - Mr. Kelly Glass, a highly accomplished rugby player from South Island, New Zealand and Mr. Geoff Hyde, an Australian tourism adviser, suggesting a game of touch rugby the following Sunday morning.
