Our first day at the Booth started with pomp and circumstance with the visit of Consul General of Canada Nadia Theodore and Ash Miller, Political and Economic Relations Officer. Take a look at some of the photos of this morning’s activity at the Canada Booth.
Many thanks to all our volunteers who hosted today. Please send along your photos!
Take a look at the few pics of the booth setup today. Thanks to Gary, Denise and Caroline (and a few passers-by) for getting everything ready. We even had a couple of visitors drop by to “spend winter in Canada” in front of our super mural! (We think that’s going to be popular!)
The President of the Canadian Network of North Carolina sent a few photos of the Monarch Migration event organized by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in partnership with the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta and the Consulate General of México in Raleigh. The event was held on October 20. Enjoy!

Canada will be represented again this year at the Raleigh International Festival on Oct 26-28. We invite you to drop by the Canada Cultural Booth to see how we’ve interpreted this year’s theme, Celebrations Around the World. (You might want to wear a tuque or mukluks!) We have a wonderful team of Canadian volunteers ready to welcome you on all three days of the festival.
There will be dancing, music, culture, food and much more! Join us on Friday, Oct. 26 (10:30am – 10pm), Saturday, Oct. 27 (10am – 10pm) and Sunday, Oct. 28 (11am – 7pm). Visit the Raleigh International Festival website to purchase tickets or view the schedules.
The Canada Cultural Booth is organized by Canadian Network of North Carolina in partnership with the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta and the generous support of RBC Bank.
We are looking for an enthusiastic Canadian who is interested in helping CNNC keep in touch with its members in The Triangle and across the state.
The CNNC communications officer will respond to CNNC email as well as compose and send newsletters using Mail Chimp. The communications officer is considered a full member of the CNNC Leadership Team and will work closely with the president, events coordinator and social media coordinator to promote various activities and share information with the membership.
The best candidate will work well both independently and as part of team, will contribute to discussions, meet deadlines, and respond quickly to emails, will feel comfortable asking questions and seeking guidance from other team members, and will attend the rare CNNC meetings. They will also have enough volunteer time to devote to the various tasks required of the communications officer (time varies based on the number of emails received and when a newsletter is required). Familiarity with various online communication tools and excellent written communications skills are required.
Interested Canadians should send the CNNC Leadership Team an email introducing themselves and describing the skills and interests they possess to successfully get the CNNC message out to Canadians in North Carolina.
