Hungarian Cultural Week in Montreal
Are you ready to discover Hungary in Montreal?
Hungary aims at strengthening the relations with Quebec.
Quebec, in our view, is a natural partner to Hungary and we are ready to exploit the potential in culture, trade and business.
There are already many links between the province and Hungary: Montreal received Hungarian immigrants and refugees at different times, Montreal was the centre where Hungarians fleeing communism arrived in 1956, but Montreal also provided home for the porcelain-manufacturer Zsolnay family when they had to leave their homeland.
This year represents a great opportunity to revive and strengthen relations. The 60th anniversary of the Revolution of 1956 provides us an opportunity to look back and pay homage to the individual achievements of Hungarian Canadians who contributed to a great extent to the success and prosperity of Canada that we see today.
The events of the Hungarian Cultural Week are sponsored by the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and Freedom Fight 60th Anniversary Memorial Board.
