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
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.

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.
