November pub night, Fri. Nov. 21

The club’s November pub night will happen on Friday, Nov. 21 starting at 7 PM. Come along (and bring your partner too) to Charlie Scott’s bar, Skindergade 43 (near Fiolstraede) in Copenhagen. If we are not sitting on the main floor, go upstairs to the first floor. The bar has a selection of drinks but not much in the way of food, so best to eat before-hand. It’s possible we will be treated to live jazz music later in the evening. Many thanks to Amanda Knoll for organizing this event! Give me or Amanda a call (5015 1275) if you can’t find us.

Certifying documents legally

The firm International Documents Canada ( www.idocscanada.ca ) which is based in Ottawa, provides legal authentication of Canadian documents. This allows people moving abroad to have their Canadian documents officially recognized in a foreign country. There’s more information on the company’s web site.

September pub night in Copenhagen

Our next Allcanuck pub night will be held on Friday, Sept. 12 starting at 5:30 PM. Let’s try a new venue:

Cafe Bopa
Bopa Plads – corner of Viborggade and Randersgade in Osterbro, Copenhagen.

To get there, take the S-train to Nordhavn and walk west on Hjorringgade. Or take the 1A bus and get off at Osterborggade and Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads. Call or send me a text (5015 1275) if you can’t find the group.

If the weather is nice, we can sit outside, or move indoors if not. The bar serves a range of drinks and food. Bring your partner and be ready to meet your fellow Canucks. No need to RSVP. See you then!

Improve your skills in Danish

Peter Erkmann, a Master’s student in communication at the University of Copenhagen, has created a free-to-use web site to help people improve their language skills. The site, www.Meet2Talk.com , lets participants swap their language skills (in other words, if you as an English speaker were matched up with a Danish speaker, you should both increase your fluency). If you make progress with the site and your efforts in learning Danish, let our members know by adding a comment below.

A great moment for Canada!

This photograph, taken by Rune Gravengaard, captures the enthusiasm and joy of a great hockey victory. Team Canada scored gold at the Sochi winter olympics, and 45 Canadian expats cheered for them at Magraths bar on Sunday, February 23. Bravo!

New network in central Jutland

A new English-speaking branch of the Junior Chamber of Commerce (JCI) has been established in central Jutland. The group offers professional development and networking for foreign and Danish employees in companies in central Jutland.

“Many international newcomers who move to this region are young professionals who are starting their careers and they need to develop their network with other internationals and local Danes. That is where the new JCI branch can help a lot, thanks to the support of the two Danish branches,” said Anja Voller from the local Business Council in Herning.
