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 LUNCHES ARE BACK ON! Our next monthly luncheon will take place on Monday, August 8, 2022. 


Continue through summer 2022 or until further notice


First Monday, 12:00 PM (with exceptions for statutory holidays)


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.


Officers' Mess at 149 Somerset Street West (just east of Elgin Street), Ottawa.


Parking is not available at the Mess during the day. There is parking available on neighbourhood streets and lots. 24-hour parking is available a short walk away at Ottawa City Hall on Laurier Avenue. The Lisgar Street pedestrian exit is the closest to the Mess.
