Members of the Canadian Nordic Society normally meet once a month, usually on the first Monday, to socialize. You will hear a mix of English and various Nordic languages and lots of interesting conversation. We wear name tags because it is a different mix every time, and this helps us to get to know each other.
Our Christmas luncheon will be on Monday, December 4, 2023. Reservations are required. Please go to our Special Events page to register.
12:00 noon. We start gathering at around 11:30 AM to buy our lunch tickets, and perhaps a drink, at the bar, and to chat!
Lunch tickets can be purchased for a very reasonable cost at the bar immediately to your left as you enter the building. All members and their guests are welcome.
