  • Finnish Your Dinner 2018

    Finnish Your Dinner is modelled on Dinner Under the Sky, an annual summer event held in Helsinki. It is a shared meal on a warm summer evening, an idea that has now extended around the world!

    The Scandinavian Community Centre
    6540 Thomas St, Burnaby BC
    Friday August 24th, 2018
    Doors open at 6:30
    Dinner at 7:00 pm

    The bar will be open and accepts cash or credit

    This event is meant to be a potluck – bring a dish to share!
    (If you have concerns about food allergies, sensitivities, or general preference you can bring a picnic for yourself or your group)

    The kitchen will be available to heap up dishes if needed. RSVP’s appreciated, including what dish you think you will bring so we can try to have a good variety of things to eat.

    Finland 100 Worldwide project website has been published!
    We have published the new website: http://suomi-seura.fi/suomi100maailmalla
    The website includes the Calendar of Events, the Idea Bank, the Material Bank and the Performer Bank.
    The website will be developed constantly. The theme of the Finland 100 jubilee year is Together.
    Expatriate Finns – Let’s build this new website together!

    Dear expatriate Finnish organisation, announce your Finland 100 jubilee year events in the Event Calendar!
    If you have an idea for celebrating the jubilee which you want to share with other expatriate Finnish organisations, tell about it in the Idea Bank and support other expatriate Finns in their preparations for the centenary.
    The Performer Bank provides singers, musicians, bands, choirs, dancers, theatre groups, lecturers, speakers and others a forum to offer their expertise to expatriate Finnish organisations. Organisers of events can contact performers directly in the Performer Bank.

    The Material Bank includes useful website links to help you find information on Finland for expatriate Finns. If you know good websites, please share them with us.

    Welcome to our new website, we hope you enjoy them!
    Share the link with others and add it to your homepage!
    We are active also in Facebook: You will find our open group under Suomi 100 Maailmalla. Remember to join the group!

    Suomi 100 Maailmalla – Finland 100 Worldwide is the joint project of the Finland Society/Suomi-Seura ry, Ministry to Finns Abroad (National Church Council, Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland), and the Institute of Migration. It is also supported by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland and the Finnish Seamen´s Mission. Finland 100 Worldwide has been accepted to be included in the official Finland 100 programme.
