On April 6, 2018, the Fogolârs Federation of Canada became an institutional member of the Italian-Canadian Archives Project (ICAP). This is an important, significant step, which will strengthen and add to the Italian-Canadian narrative and help to preserve the Friulian record in Canada.
ICAP is working to develop and promote a national strategy to collect and preserve historical items that capture the Italian-Canadian experience. ICAP wants to facilitate and encourage individuals, families, societies and institutions that have materials in their possession to preserve these documents. They are part of our Canadian historical fabric.
The only organization of its kind with an academic focus, ICAP is holding a conference at the University of Calgary on August 24 and 25. A pre-tour of southwest Alberta and southeast BC, with stops in places where Italians made an impact, is also being organized. For further information, please read the information provided below.
