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.


Christmas lunch

Our Christmas luncheon will take place on Monday, December 5, 2022, at noon at the Army Officers' Mess. A complete turkey dinner with all the trimmings including dessert and coffee will be offered at the very reasonable price of $35 per person, payable in cash on arrival at the Mess. This includes taxes and gratuities. Please reserve your spot as soon as possible and no later than Thursday, December 1, by emailing our Treasurer, Lennart Nylund at lnylund@sympatico.ca or by calling him at 613-829-8602.
