The first meeting of the Caribbean Caucus of National Olympic Committees was held in Barbados in February, 1999. The concept for a Caribbean Olympic Caucus was first touted in January 1998 in Melbourne, Australia when a group of Caribbean delegates met to discuss Caribbean Olympism and other matters of common interest. This group called for the establishment of formal mechanisms for communication and valuable dialogue in order to develop relevant strategies to enhance the regional Olympic Movement.

The Vision of CANOC according to its Constitution is “Acknowledging the International Olympic Committee as the supreme authority of the Olympic Movement, to ensure the observance of the Olympic Charter and to contribute to the achievement of the goals set out therein while upholding the Fundamental Principles of Olympism.” And “To promote, encourage and assist sport, sport development and physical recreation throughout the Caribbean for the benefit of the nations and people of the Caribbean.”
