Canada Day CNNC Celebration Cancelled for 2020

Every year we look forward to connecting with our fellow expats to celebrate Canada Day. The event is a highlight of CNNC’s social activities, and one we hold dear as Canadians away from home.

Sadly, in light of COVID-19 and the continued need to socially distance ourselves to minimize its spread and protect the most vulnerable in our communities, the CNNC leadership team has decided to cancel this year’s Canada Day event.

Helping our communities stay informed and connected is core to this volunteer organization. We will continue to do so when able, only without any planned in-person gatherings for the foreseeable future.

Everyone’s fingers are crossed that we will all be able to celebrate Canada Day once again in true Canadian form in years to come. Until then, take care of yourselves.
