We are delighted to announce that the Canadian Institute in Greece has relocated to its new premises at Orminiou 3 (close to the Hilton Hotel), purchased in 2017 and now newly renovated. This marks an important step in the Institute’s expansion and visibility in Greece.

The three-storey, historically significant building and prime example of 1930s Athens architecture was the residence of the well-known writer, artist and art critic, Stratis Doukas, from 1938 until 1981.

Since its founding in 1974, the Canadian Institute’s key objective has been to promote Canadian research and education in fields relating to Greece’s heritage, including significant archaeological fieldwork and scientific study. Throughout the years, the Institute has had to expand several times in order to meet growing needs. By relocating to its spacious new premises, the Institute will now be able to further enhance its contribution to Greek archaeology and expand its activities to include arts and culture, by presenting the work of Canadian artists and promoting collaboration between Canadian and Greek cultural communities.

We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you to our new home, as soon as circumstances allow.
