Friends of the Canadian Club of Vancouver

 

The Flag Shop proudly sponsors The Canadian Club of Vancouver, which had its beginnings over 110 years ago, in 1906.

The Board of Directors, together with Raymond Greenwood, President, support the work of the club to promote the Canadian identity and foster patriotic sentiment in a diverse and multicultural nation. While advancing  knowledge of Canada’s own history, the club honours talent in the arts, sciences, business and public affairs, through its events and initiatives held throughout the year.

In the 1920s, the club was a leader in a local initiative to erect a cenotaph in Victory Square, honouring Canadian war veterans. Actively pursuing its goals to foster fellowship among people, and encouraging the celebration of the Canadian identity, while creating dialogue around matters of national significance, the Canadian Club of Vancouver continues to be a community leader today. The club hosts meaningful events featuring guest speakers who share knowledge, insights and personal pride in Canadian pursuits. The club is also involved in important citizenship ceremonies for new Canadians, as well as in hosting the BC-Resident Order of Canada event.

Past guest speakers include: Peter Mansbridge, OC, former Chief Correspondent of CBC News; Santa J. Ono, President, UBC; The Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin, Chief Justice of Canada, and The Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship. Plan to attend the next event in January, as the club welcomes Warren Roy, CEO & Founder, Global Relay.
