The new website of Canadian Network of North Carolina (formed by the merger of the Canadian Business Association of North Carolina (CBA-NC) with CanSouth) is scheduled for launch this week. The old CanSouth website (this site) will become defunct but visitors will be directed to the new website. Please bear with us as we make these changes and introduce our new identity to the community!
If you have questions or want to join our new mailing list, you can reach us at canadiannetworknc (a) gmail.com.
Join us on Sunday, November 26 at BottleDog Bites and Brews in Cary for a pre-game beer or a kickoff poutine! (Or a smoked meat sandwich. Or a beaver tail!). Or you can simply come hang out with fellow Canadians.
This is a ‘pay your own tab’ event.
Event starts at 4:30pm Kickoff is at 6pm
Registration is required.
Please click here to sign up.
We look forward to seeing you soon and chatting about our new group, the Canadian Network of North Carolina (merger between CanSouth and the Canadian Business Association of NC).
The Canada Booth would not have been possible without our wonderful volunteers (Alara, Caitlyn, Carol, Caroline, Craig, Denise, Dominique, Donna, Ethan, Frank, Gary, Helen, Ian, Jane, Joe, Karissa, Martin, Nedelka, Paul, Susana and Tera) and the generous support of the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta. Many, many thanks to everyone!

Another wonderful day at the Canada Booth and the last of this year’s International Festival. The combination of the colourful superheroes and the contemplative black and white didactics about the real, human heroes was a success. We got great compliments about the booth all weekend: eye-catching, educational, fun, well-designed with easy to read panels, and–most important–hosted by knowledgeable and friendly volunteers.
Here are a few photos of today’s action at the Booth.
Thank you to our superb volunteers who hosted today: Carol, Caroline, Helen, Frank, Ethan, Paul, and Gary.
Another great day at the Canada Booth enlightening puzzled visitors who didn’t realize that Superman had a Canadian connection (artist and co-creator Joe Shuster was born in Toronto). More people took time to also look at the true Canadian heroes today. Several were amazed at the diversity of the heroic human on our walls and at their courage, valour and accomplishments.
Thank you to our fantastic volunteers who hosted the Booth today: Gary, Paul, Joe, Jane, Susana, Ian, Donna, Alara, Caitlyn, Nedelka. Karissa, Martin and Caroline!
Hoards of children descended upon the Canada Booth (a tad earlier than anticipated) on this first day of the 2017 Raleigh International Festival. We tricked young and old by switching the names of the superheroes featured in the booth… but many have thus discovered the amazing Nelvana of the Northern Lights and super cool Captain Canuck.
Canada 150 flags, pins, tattoos as well as maple candy and colouring sheets were distributed to the great delight of the masses. See our wonderful volunteers in action!
Many thanks to volunteers Shirley, Tera, Denise, Craig, Dominique, Gary, Paul and Caroline for hosting the Canada Booth today!
The 2017 Canada Booth came out of a bunch of bags and boxes in record time! We must be getting good at this… 30 minutes to set up the black curtain that’s been known to take much, much longer to hang. Canadian heroes and superheroes appeared on the walls and incredibly by 2:30pm we were done. Ahead by a century, it seemed.
Here are some fun pics of the installation. Thank you to Gary, Denise and Caroline for setting up and many thanks to the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta for generously supporting this cultural endeavour.
The Canadian Network of North Carolina now has an email address! You can reach us at canadiannetworknc ( a ) gmail.com. Please add our email to your contacts.
As the merger between CanSouth and CBA-NC progresses we will setup up social accounts as well as a blog and website. We will keep you updated via the CanSouth blog, Facebook page and LinkedIn as well as CBA-NC’s Facebook page.
Bear with us as we strive to form a new group that will comprehensively serve Canadians in North Carolina.
There are some big changes coming to our group this fall. CanSouth will officially be merging with the Canadian Business Association of North Carolina (CBA-NC) and forming a new group to comprehensively serve Canadians in the area. The new group will have a social presence, host the Canada Booth at the International Festival, provide a forum to ask questions and obtain information on a variety of services, and focus on professional networking activities.
The new group will be called the Canadian Network of North Carolina.
We are of course going to need your help to make this merger successful. In the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing additional information and asking for your feedback on several things.
Be on the lookout for information about our updated Facebook page, website and email address.
Stay tuned for an invitation to our first Canadian Network NC social event, an informal meeting to get to know new members, ask questions and provide input on the new group.
Vote on the new group logo! We’ll be sending out a survey to get your input on our new look.
Weigh in on additional services we can offer and how best to serve you.
So please keep an eye on your emails for additional communications and don’t miss the opportunity to share your feedback.
