A social and professional networking group for Canadians living and working in North Carolina

CNNC has a new president

CNNC President Caroline Rocheleau stepped down on January 20. Rocheleau had been heading the leadership team of Canadian Network of North Carolina since its formation through the merger of CanSouth and the Canadian Business Association of North Carolina in summer of 2017.

She is succeeded by Susana Almeida-Peters, who has been CNNC’s social media coordinator since December 2017. Upon accepting the presidency, Almeida-Peters said, “Being new to Raleigh in 2017, it made my husband and I happy to have found the CNNC. We were excited to join and talk to and mingle with fellow Canadians. It made us feel like we were not alone here. It also provided some comfort knowing we have a little bit of Canada in Raleigh! It’s important to have this group in The Triangle so other Canadians new to the area have that support as well!

Thank you to Caroline for her dedicated years of service and best wishes to Susana as she takes on this new leadership role.

Seeking volunteers for Cultural Pop Up committee

CNNC is partnering up with the City of Raleigh to host a Cultural Pop Up event about Canada for their Cultural Outreach and Engagement Program.

We are forming a committee to plan and host this program, and are seeking Canadians in The Triangle to develop family-friendly activities that promote the diverse cultures of Canada, from sea to sea to sea! We plan to have a French component and we encourage French Canadians to sign up to help develop this content. If you are familiar with Inuktitut and its writing system, we would be interested to hear from you!

Please contact us by January 15 of you are interested in joining this committee.  Simply use the email form on our Contact Us page!
