Our Institute is best known for its facilitation of archaeological research by Canadian university-based scholars in Greece. While this is our primary mission it is not our only one. We are also interested in the study of Greece and its culture in the broadest sense through the present using a variety of research methodologies. Related to this goal is fostering the understanding of the nature and extent of relationships between Greece and Canada. This fall we will host three lectures that examine aspects of the recent history of Greece and of Greek immigration to Canada.Read More

Over the last 3 years the Canadian Institute in Greece has become such a big part of my life, providing me friends, opportunities, learning experiences, and inspiration. Sadly my time in Greece is up, and I'm off on a new adventure in a new land. While I know that the CIG will remain a part of my life after I leave, it's going to be strange not being as directly involved as I was.
