All About Equatoria

Equatoria Region of South Sudan

Equatoria is a region of southern South Sudan, along the upper reaches of the White Nile. Equatoria was established by Samuel Baker in 1870. Formerly a province of Egypt, it also contained most of the northern parts of present-day Uganda. The Equatoria region of South Sudan consists of West, Central, and East Equatoria.

Canadian Equatorian Community

Many of the people of the Equatoria region of South Sudan came to Canada in the early 1990s, fleeing the war that ravaged South Sudan for over 21 years. The majority of the Equatorians settled in the province of Ontario, although we have many in Alberta, British Columbia, and most Western Canada.
