HALIFAX IS CALLING!

Dear Members of the Federation of Danish Associations in Canada:
Are you ready for something different?

The Federation of Danish Associations in Canada is hosting the 2018 Conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia!  May 24th to 27th, 2018.  The Theme of this year’s conference is:  Pier 21 – Where We Met Canada.

Halifax is, of course, the home of Pier 21 – the former immigration shed, now a Museum, where many of you, your parents, or your grandparents first set foot in this wonderful country.  Holding the Conference in Halifax presents a unique opportunity for many of us to explore our Danish Canadian roots up close.   We have set aside time for individual and group exploration of all that the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21has to offer – perhaps you can find a copy of original immigration documents for your family?

The Conference has never been held in Halifax, so this will be your chance to explore the magnificent scenery and hospitality of Canada's east coast.   The conference includes a tour to Peggy's Cove, a city tour, a harbour tour with dinner on a ship, a day at Pier 21, and a lunch at the beautiful Austenville Owls' Club on Sunday.

Mark your calendar now for May 24 – 27, 2018 and get your registration in today to avoid disappointment.  Many of our scheduled tours have limited availability so we must enforce a ceiling of 55 participants for the Conference.

The Conference Hotel is the Delta Barrington in Halifax.  To receive the special guestroom rate of $159.00 per night, delegates can call the toll-free reservations number at 1-800-268-1133 and ask for “The Federation of Danish Association of Canada”.  Alternatively, you may book your accommodation online by 
Clicking Here Please note that we have reserved a block of only 30 rooms and once these are filled, the rate may increase.  The deadline for reservations to receive the group rate is April 24, 2018.

We look forward to enjoying Halifax with you in 2018!
On behalf of the Board of the Federation of Danish Associations in Canada

Larry Kjearsgaard,
Conference Chair
