The EAC offers and provides help, orientation and support to new Egyptian immigrants who arrive into Canterbury.
EAC upholds the values of participatory democracy, all members from all backgrounds are able to access the elected management committee and all views are to be given equal consideration at general meetings.
EAC serves as a unifying organisation for the local Egyptian community in order to give the community a voice and presence on the local scene. Having an official organisation for the Egyptian community should imbue it with the capacity to be a more effective participant in local life.
