Canada Day Celebration @ Carolina Ale House

Canada Day is July 1 but the CNNC is inviting you to a celebration gathering on Saturday July 2 from 12-3 pm at the Carolina Ale House at Brier Creek. Whether you’re Canada born or a Canuck at heart, please join us as we celebrate the 155th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada. We will have mini Canadian flags to share with all and conviviality is always on tap. Bring your friends, come meet fellow Canadians from across the triangle, and help celebrate Canada Day. Carolina Ale House menu is vast and although they don’t carry our favorite POUTINE, their Bacon Cheese Fries dish is pretty darn close to it. Of course they also provide a wide variety of frothy beverages and non-alcoholic options. The address of Carolina Ale House 7981 SKYLAND RIDGE PKWY, RALEIGH, 27617

CNNC has a New Webmaster

After a lengthy search, CNNC has confirmed our new webmaster, Frank DiMauro. He replaces Dominique Bischof who has served in this capacity for several years and for which CNNC is very grateful. Frank, originally from Montreal, Quebec, moved to NC with his young family in 1989 and has lived in Chapel Hill ever since. As Marketing-Communications Manager, he served as the first webmaster for the Area Health Education Centers of the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine and developed one of the School’s first websites in 1994. Frank then moved on to UNC Hospitals, and expanded its nascent online presence from a single website and a few pages, to a full-fledged series of domains and sub-domains, comprising over a half-dozen websites. Frank also spearheaded training at UNC Health Care for dozens of content managers on the use of an open-source content management system he helped install and update as needed. Frank is now retired with his wife Shelley, a former nurse and clinical research project manager, also from Quebec.

CNNC has a new Communications Officer

CNNC is delighted to welcome a new communications officer to the Leadership Team. Mike Rumble was previously involved with CanSouth back in the heyday and wants to get back into volunteering. He will be taking over communications duties and keeping our network informed in myriad ways. We look forward to working with him.


CNNC is still looking for volunteers interested in serving as President or Webmaster to replace these outgoing Leadership Team members. As with any volunteer social organization, the time commitment and the number of events is based on what the team can dedicate to the group. If you are interested in these positions, please contact us.

CNNC has a new treasurer

The Leadership Team is delighted to welcome Nathan as the new CNNC Treasurer.  Nathan is taking over the post previously held by Denise, who moved back to Canada.  Denise served as Treasurer for both CanSouth and the Canadian Network of North Carolina.  We wish her well and we look forward to working with Nathan.

We also have new members at large! Alan and Paul have indicated that they can help with events whenever CNNC’s post-pandemic social schedule resumes.

Seeking New Leadership

Dear CNNC community,

As many know, the Canadian Network of North Carolina strives to provide access to information pertinent to Canadians living and working in North Carolina and offer the expat community various social and professional networking opportunities.

A staple of the Canadian expat community in North Carolina for over a decade, CNNC (formerly CanSouth and CBA-NC) is entirely led by a team of volunteer Canadians.

Regrettably, as happens from time to time due to increasing time commitments on our leadership teams, we are reaching out to you for new leadership.

CNNC is seeking a few motivated individuals willing to take on leadership roles.

Along with our website and Facebook presence, duties center primarily around organizing the annual Canada Day get-together, the Carolina Hurricanes annual hockey deal, and if interested, the Canada cultural booth at the Raleigh International Festival.

With helpful transition guidance from the current leadership team, taking on organizing responsibilities needs but a few enthusiastic Canadians willing to share duties.

Interested Canadians are encouraged to contact us!

It has been a pleasure stewarding CNNC for our greater community over the past few years. We’re looking forward to its bright future under new leaders. Thank you so much for your support and interest.

Susana, Caroline, Dominique
The outgoing leadership team
