Canadian Friends of Finland, Vancouver Chapter now part of the Finnish Expatriate Parliament

I have received your ratification form today and I have also added your information to the FEP register. That means you are now a full-fledged member of the FEP and are welcome to participate in the FEP in sending representatives and observers to our sessions (the next FEP session is to be held in Helsinki on the 24th and 25th of May 2010) and submit initiatives to the Parliament.

On our web page www.usp.fi you can find more information on what we do and topical issues concerning Finnish Expatriates and your region. You can also find all the initiatives submitted to the previous sessions, all the resolutions taken and minutes as well as a lot of other information on what we do. If you would like a printed copy of the resolutions we have them in Finnish, Swedish and English. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like your own copy. I’d be happy to mail them to you.

If you have questions or other issues you would like to raise with the Parliament you are more than welcome to be in contact either with me, the parliament secretary, or the vice-speaker and alternate speaker of your region. In your case that would be Mr. Niilo Saari (nksaari @ sympatico.ca) or Mr. Veli Niinimaa (veli@ nucleus.com). We would love to hear from you!

Once more a warm welcome to the Finnish Expatriate Parliament!
