Canadian Expat Association launches new site to bring the Canadian Diaspora together
The Canadian Expat Association (CEA) has announced that beginning on July 1st, as part of a global celebration of Canada Day, it will be launching a new initiative to link all Canadians living abroad under one platform.
PR9.NET June 22, 2008 - Canada, Victoria BC - After entering into discussions with a number of Canadian Business Councils, Canadian Clubs and Chambers of Commerce around the world, the CEA is launching a new site to help Canadians stay in touch with each other. At nearly 9% of the total population of Canada, the estimated 2.7 million Canadians living abroad will now be able to connect regardless of where they are living. Executive Director of CEA, Allan Nichols stated "While Canadian Clubs and business organizations are present in literally every major city on earth, they tend to be extremely disconnected from each other. These groups serve the local population of Canadians very well, but now they are also partnering with us to support Expats on a truly global scale." Among the benefits offered will be the opportunity to search in both French and English for events globally, the ability to search for member Canadian companies operating in any area of the world, the ability read articles and obtain information that can help improve their lives while away from Canada.
The association is also playing an advocacy role back in Canada on behalf of Expats. A few of the many issues the association has taken on include taxation, closing of Canadian consulates, cutting back on services offered to Canadians that live abroad and the recognition of academic and professional credentials acquired by Canadians at foreign institutions.
Canadian Expats should visit www.thecanadianexpat.com or call 1+ (250) 415-0051 for more information or to become involved.
