CANA’s challenge is to ensure that every newcomer settles and participates in society, in a way that is conducive to their socio-economic integration and inclusion.
Its driving force is the diversity of its members, who come from multiple and complementary backgrounds and who decide to act together.

Activities carried out between 2022 and 2023.

Discovery area

Espace découverte is a new concept at CANA. Once a month, someone will come and share an activity, practice or hobby with newcomers to help them discover (and perhaps initiate) new things!
So if you’re an immigrant and you might have something you’d like to share, don’t hesitate to fill in this form:

Cuisines of the World

Cuisines of the World is a culinary activity in which participants share a recipe from their native country. It’s a moment of sharing and exchange around a dish from here and elsewhere, while savouring the delights offered by the participants. It’s also good practice in French culinary terms for those learning the language.

The cuisines discovered this year are Colombian, Peruvian, Lebanese, Haitian, Québécois, Salvadorian and Iranian.

Les cuisines découvertes cette année sont colombienne, péruvienne, libanaise, haïtienne, québécoise, salvadorienne et iranienne.
