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.

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!
