Today is a special day set aside to appreciate all things Canadiana! There’s just nothing like Canadian film, the indoctrination starts early with childhood favourites like Mr. Dressup, Sharon, Louise & Bram and Polka Dot Door. As we get a little older we’re introduced to Anne of Green Gables and Fly Away Home that both project coming of age stories against the kind of scenery we can only find up here. If you were really into the drama there’s the many regenerations of Degrassi to get you through – ‘it goes there’. Now all grown up you’re ready to...

LA NUIT SUR L’ETANG CELEBRATES FRANCO-ONTARIAN CULTURE

LA NUIT SUR L’ETANG CELEBRATES FRANCO-ONTARIAN CULTURE

Sudbury knows what celebrating Franco-Ontarian tradition is all about! La Nuit sur L’Etang hosts an annual concert, bringing traditional Francophone music to Northern Ontario for over 40 years. Giving a platform to the Franco-Ontarian community in a city as culturally diverse and into art as Sudbury, La Nuit sur L’Etang incredibly puts together a night of some of the most eclectic, interesting music you’ll hear! Before moving to Sudbury, the most intense interaction I had with French was in class three times a week. A lover of French culture (a budding Francophile, if you will) or for people who...

​NEW EXHIBITION AT THE GNO: LE HOMECOMING

Nothing says Northern Ontario like a bear skin rug, an anti-mosquito suit, and of course, a good old fashioned snowmobile. The GNO, Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario, is presenting our beloved city of Sudbury with its newest exhibition titled le homecoming! Running from March 17th-May 5th, we had the opportunity to attend this exhibition’s opening reception where we were blown away by the intricate detail, amazing textiles, and the rural Northern Ontario feel that artist Jenna Dawn Maclellan worked so hard to create.
