Who are we?

Fostering connections between Canada and Finland...

Finland and Canada have much in common.  We also have much to share.  The Canadian Friends of Finland Ottawa promotes positive exchanges between the two countries so that we may better understand each other and share the best that our countries have to offer.  We sponsor or encourage Finnish-Canadian social, cultural, and educational events.  Check out our upcoming and past events by visiting our Events page.  We have sister organizations in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver.
Our membership is varied.  It includes  individuals born in Finland, those of Finnish descent, and those who have developed a love of Finland through study, travel, or residence in the country for a period of time.  Click the link below and join our email list to receive our communications highlighting our organization's news and events.
