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 or, after October 1st,  

Check our calendar of events for SEPTEMBER 2014 (pdf). 

Stay tuned and keep in touch!

Please be kindly advised that, due to the imminent closure of the Istituto, the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada – West, based in downtown Vancouver, is taking over our language courses, in collaboration with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Toronto.
The upcoming Fall session will be held from October 6 to December 19, 2014.
