Proof of full vaccination required when attending the Irish Club

Due to the recent rise in COVID cases and recommendations from public health the Irish Association will now require anyone attending the club in person to provide proof of full vaccination as of Aug 26th/2021. This will be a temporary measure that will be reassessed in the fall by the board. Masks will also be required when moving throughout the facility but not when seated at the table. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Expansion of Passport Online Services

Passport Online has expanded its services and is now open to all applicants residing in Canada! This means, in addition to renewals, first time applicants can use the Passport Online tool to apply for their Irish passport (or renew their passport that was issued over 15 years ago). The expanded service includes both adult and children's applications. For information on how to apply, or to begin your application, please see: www.dfa.ie/passportonline.

Passport Online provides citizens with faster processing times and lower fees than the alternative paper route. The Passport Service recently resumed processing online applications and they aim to have the current backlog of onlie applications cleared within the next 6-8 weeks. The online service still remains the fastest way to apply for an Irish passport.

March is now Irish Heritage Month in Canada

An historic moment!! March is now Irish Heritage Month in Canada thanks to James Maloney MP for all his efforts in making this happen-

James Maloney, who represents Etobicoke-Lakeshore in the Canadian House of Commons, celebrates after his motion to designate March as Irish Heritage Month passed unanimously.

In an interview James Maloney said: “My motion just passed in the House of Commons with unanimous consent.

The month of March is now officially known as Irish Heritage Month”

Maloney’s motion, M-18, reads: “That, in the opinion of the House, the government should recognize the important contributions that Irish-Canadians have made to building Canada, and to Canadian society in general, and should mark the importance of educating and reflecting upon Irish heritage and culture for future generations by declaring the month of March as Irish Heritage Month.“

Keep an eye on our website www.celticcanada.com to learn the history in making history this month!

This has been anything but a normal year for the Association as we confronted Covid-19.

The impact on the club finances has been immense. With the necessity to cancel St. Patrick’s celebrations & Folklorama, our two main fundraisers, in addition to losing all rental potential & club functions the association has generated no income since March. We have seen our share of good times and bad, but Covid-19 has been a complete game changer for our finances. Therefore the IAM board is asking for your support in it’s fundraising efforts.
