The Athens Association of Friends of the Canadian Institute was founded in 1989. Associations in Ottawa and Toronto followed in 2006 and 2007 respectively.
The Friends provide much-needed support for the Institute in many ways. They host events to involve the wider public in the work of the Institute through lectures, excursions, visits to museums and other activities. The fund-raising efforts of the Athens Friends helped the Institute to purchase its first apartment in Athens.
For an annual subscription you will be invited to a range of events and lectures especially organized for the Friends. You will also be kept updated on Institute activities via receipt of the semi-annual Bulletin.
To join the Friends and participate in supporting CIG, please fill in an application form and send it either to CIG’s Athens offices (Europe) or Membership Secretary (North America and the rest of the world).
