Canadian jazz artist Laila Biali is in Durham on Saturday

Looking for something Canadian to do this weekend?
Canadian crossover jazz artist Laila Biali, who has toured with Sting, Chris Botti, Paula Cole and Suzanne Vega, has recently released a new album, which debuted at #1 on iTunes Canada and #7 on iTunes USA.  She is inviting the Canadian expat community of The Triangle to celebrate with her on Saturday at Sharp 9 Gallery, 4608-L Industry Lane, Durham, NC 27713. Tickets for this event can be purchased online.

I’ll be playing an album release show at Sharp 9 Gallery this Saturday, March 10 at 8 pm. We’ll also be performing a number of songs from the Great Canadian Songbook including covers of Joni Mitchell, Feist, k.d. Lang and Neil Young.

We hope you can come celebrate with us!


CNNC social media update

The Canadian Network of North Carolina now has its own social media outlets and all CanSouth and CBA-NC accounts will be closed.

We have a new Facebook page, a public profile where we post CNNC news and upcoming events as well as other Canadian content. Canadians and other who like Canada are invited to follow us. If you haven’t transferred over, look for Canadian Network of NC on Facebook.

In the recent member survey, 70% of respondents expressed the desire for a private discussion board. The Canadian Network of NC has thus created a closed moderated Facebook group as an extension of the public Facebook page. It is a place to talk with fellow Canadians living in NC and ask questions about immigration, taxes, US banking, healthcare and personal experiences. This page is restricted to Canadians living in NC and there will be three questions to answer to join. You will be accepted within 24 hours.

We also have a new LinkedIn group, under the name Canadian Network of North Carolina (CNNC). Select the option that says ‘group’ because a business page was inadvertently created and is still available even though it was deleted. Our LinkedIn page is for Canadians living and/or working in North Carolina.

If not on social media, Canadians living in NC can sign up for our mailing list—which is our de facto member list—to keep up with news and networking events. Join the CNNC and our mailing list by sending us an email via the Contact Us page of our website.

You can also receive email notifications each time we post to our blog. Anybody can follow us; simply click the Follow button on and enter your email address.

We’re very grateful that you’ve stuck with us during the merger process. We invite you to join our new outlets if you haven’t already done so and we hope to see you soon at a networking event!
