Work at the Montreal Church of the Dormition of the Mother of God has entered its final stage, meaning that, on August 15, Montreal Greeks could well honour the Dormition there, since it is expected that all work should be finished by mid-July to early August. The church had previously been completely destroyed by a fire on Easter Monday of2015.

Montreal’s 10th All-Pontian North American Youth Festival concluded with great success, as more than 250 members of U.S. and Canadian Pontian youth organizations had the opportunity to attend a series of events, including seminars on dances, songs and uniforms, as well as a grand traditional feast with 500 participating Greeks.
