Canadian Embassy | Canadian Institute in Greece | Friends of Canada |

Dear Friends of Canada,
The opening of our Fine Art Exhibition was a big smash – congrats to the five artists, most especially to coordinator and exhibitor Stephanie Sampson! Check out the photos at: http://www.friendsofcanada.gr/photo-gallery/2012-athens-sept-fine-art-exhibit-photos.html
Many thanks to our partners, the Canadian Embassy and the Canadian Institute in Greece – along with Methymnaeos Wine Estate for their wine sponsorship. And special thanks to Ambassador Robert Peck and Maria Pantazi Peck for joining us.
At the opening, we also announced two brand new Friends of Canada networks – Welfare & Franco-Canadian/ Réseau Franco-Canadien. Read the exciting descriptions below – and join!
Lastly, we have a very welcome announcement from the Canadian embassy regarding the simplification of Canadian passport renewals.

 

 

FRIENDS OF CANADA ‘WELFARE NETWORK’.

Anytime, day or night, if you turn on your TV set you will hear about “The Crisis”. Actually, this is not just a crisis but rather “The Crisis”. And, while facing a crisis due to a natural disaster is hard enough to cope with, a manmade crisis like this requires even more sensitivity.
The full extent of the present crisis is difficult to estimate. You shouldn’t be surprised if the person who passes by you today on the street, or the person sitting next to you at one of Friends of Canada meetings, is one who has been touched.
If you feel you can join our group – which operates in conjunction with the Salvation Army – we would be glad to share ways of helping with you. We’ll also keep you informed about the progress we are making. No matter how small your offer – from your time as a volunteer, to a bag of dry food goods or a children’s Christmas package – it can make a huge difference to someone’s life.
We are looking forward to working with you.

FRIENDS OF CANADA ‘RESEAU FRANCO-CANADIEN/FRANCO-CANADIAN NETWORK’.

Parce que le Canada se définit comme une nation bilingue et multiculturelle, que le français et l’anglais sont, à statut égal, ses deux langues officielles, les Canadiens et les ami(e)s du Canada du monde entier seront les bienvenu(e)s sur notre réseau francophone d’Athènes.
Si vous cherchez des informations en français sur la vie quotidienne en Grèce, nous essaierons de répondre à vos demandes.
Si vous souhaitez proposer des activités bénévoles, nous en discuterons avec vous.
Nous essaierons d’organiser des cafés rencontres chez nos membres mais aussi, selon les demandes, des évènements sociaux, culturels ou autres …
N’hésitez pas à nous faire part de vos suggestions.
Et donc, si vous souhaitez participer à notre vie associative en français, merci de venir nous rejoindre ici.

Canada is defined as a bilingual and multicultural nation, with French and English being, equally, its two official languages. As such, Canadians and friends of Canada from all nations are welcome to join this Athenian francophone network.
We are here to answer questions that French-speakers may have about resources, like French-language schools, plus we hope to provide coffee meetings for our members, cultural or social events and more….
We also welcome your suggestions. Join us!
Facilitator: Marie-Thérèse Rolland, marietherese.canada@gmail.com
