Dear Members and Friends,
With the month of September, 2014, the activities of the Istituto come to an end. Our offices will cease to exist on September 30th. Nevertheless, a Cultural Office is being opened within the Consulate General in Vancouver, so some of our services will remain active, and a few events will still be organized every year.
We would like to thank all of you who have shown us their support during these 34 years of activity in Vancouver.
If you would like to still receive information on cultural events, please send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org or, after October 1st, email@example.com.
Check our calendar of events for SEPTEMBER 2014 (pdf).
Also, among the areas that will be affected by these changes, there are our language courses, that should be taken over by a new provider. The beginning of the Fall session will be therefore slightly delayed this year (early October to mid-December), but the courses will retain a similar structure, the same teachers and the same textbooks as before. The schedule for the next session should be finalized by mid-September, when we shall get back to you to inform you of the new procedures for registration.
Stay tuned and keep in touch!
