Nearly every month, our club has a Club Night out on the town in Oslo. We move around from place to place and try to find interesting places to meet our fellow Canadians.
As well we hold an Information evening, Canada Day, Golf Tournament, and the annual Christmas Dinner. Below are some our passed events and activities.
If you feel the website could be more useful and would like to help keeping it updated, we would love to hear from you.

Some updates from the Canadian Club:
First, at our board meeting in January, Janette Fjeldstad announced that she is leaving the board. Janette has been an invaluable board member and was instrumental in the merger of the Canadian Women’s Club and Canadian Club of Norway. Since the merger, Janette has sat as the secretary to our board as well as organized many Christmas Dinner’s that we have very much enjoyed at the Official Residence. Janette has been an integral member of the board and has contributed greatly to the clubs ongoing operations. We will miss her greatly. We want to thank Janette for her services to our club and hope that we continue to see her out at our events.
Second, we have a new ambassador. David Sproule reports for duty this week and will be taking over the spot left vacant when John Hannaford returned to Canada earlier. We have had no indication as to what changes the club can expect, but we hope to meet with him as soon as possible. We are also trying to arrange an Information Evening with him and his colleagues from the Embassy as well. We will keep you informed of this as soon as we are able to set something up.
Club Night was held at Fru Burum's on December 18th. Good to see many out for our last event of the year!
We lost a dear friend and co-founder of our club, Arne Bruheim this week. Arne passed away on November 14th. We miss you greatly, Arne.
Club Night on November 13th was at 3 Brødre. Out fellow Canadian and our favourite piano man, Barry Colson was at his best once again.

Christmas Dinner for members only will be held December 4th at the former Ambassador Residence. Come out for one last party at this beautiful house.
Club Night for October was a nice evening at the Dubliner. Great to see so many out on such a rainy night in Oslo.
Club Night for September was at Jacob Aall - Majorstua on September 13th. We were a small crowd but nice to see some new faces as well.
Eline Fjeldheim is leaving the Embassy this week and will be moving on to remember the woman on the tractor at Canada Day. I know the kids will remember her. But she did so much more than that, helping our club with events at the OR and elsewhere. We appreciate all the help that Eline has given us as well as her friendship. I hope that she will continue to be part of our Canadian Club in Norway.

Club Night for July was a good group at Fru Burums. The weather was not great but such is Norway.

Anyone wishing to fill Derek's shoes as our new Pub-meister, please get in touch.

Ski Weekend was a tremendous success for another year. Weather was perfect, conditions, food and company was also excellent. Those that missed it, can only hear from those in attendance as to how good it was! Thanx to Bruce for putting together the trip this year. Everyone is looking forward to next year already.
