TRĪS SIVĒNTIŅI, UN, VARBŪT ARĪ VILKS
Toronto latviešu biedrības sestdienas skola dibināta 1950. gadā. Skolai ir 1072 absolventi. Jau daudzus gadus desmitus Draudzīgā aicinājuma atzīmēšanai 6. klases skolēni iestudē teātra izrādi. Šogad tā ir TRĪS SIVĒNTIŅI, UN, VARBŪT ARĪ VILKS. Mēs aktīvi gatavojamies un ar nepacietību gaidām, kad varēsim atrādīt, ko esam sagatavojuši! Virtuāli vai klātienē, bet Draudzīgā aicinājuma teātrim būs būt!
Sīkāka informācija sekos skolas un Centra Facebook lapās kā arī avīzē Latvija Amerikā. Uz tikšanos!

The Latvian Canadian Cultural Centre is the heart of Latvian life in Toronto and Canada
Its mandate is to foster and sustain Latvian heritage and cultural traditions and to provide a venue for social and cultural exchange with other cultural communities in Canada. The non-profit Centre provides facilities for cultural, social, business and recreational activities for the general public and its members.
Helping each other through the pandemic!
The Latvian Canadian Cultural Centre and the Honorary Consul of Latvia in Southern Ontario, Karlis Vasarajs, have started an initiative to help our Latvian community during this pandemic. We are making care packages with food items to deliver to those in need. If you know of anyone who is in need please contact us with their name, address and telephone number.
Past, Present and Future
The Latvian Canadian Cultural Centre
Past, Present, and Future
It was difficult to accept the decision to leave our College Street home for our current location of 4 Credit Union Drive. It almost split the Latvian community in disagreement. But the decision was made, and the Latvian centre was purchased in 1979. Our community came together in support, and our volunteer community was strong in accommodating the change.
In a 1984 Multicultural History Society of Ontario article, written by Valdis Liepins, he writes, ”Catering (at the Latvian centre) is directed by the catering manager, aided by a very active and gourmet minded women’s committee, which has established an enviable reputation for high-class, yet affordable, catering. Being a charity, the centre is run by a board of directors who receive no remuneration. In addition to the women’s committee, there are three special function committees-an arts committee, a library committee and a building committee. As a result of their energies the centre functions smoothly and efficiently and is entirely self-supporting.”
LCCC Scholarship Fund
The Latvian Canadian Cultural Centre’s Scholarship Fund was established in 1986, to further student’s Latvian Studies. Since that time, $160,000 has been awarded in scholarships.
The 2021 Scholarship application is attached. Fully completed applications must be submitted to the Latvian Centre office by May 1, 2021.
