Project Update: June 2018

The project team is pleased that we’re kicking off this project fully in June 2018. Here’s what’s happened:

  • All grant funds have been received from Library and Archives Canada. This money is used primarily to pay our Finnish Archives Specialist over the next 9 months
  • Saku Pinta has been hired as Finnish Archives Specialist. A historian who’s fluent in Finnish and English, he’ll be carrying out the bulk of the work of the project
  • We have started project work, looking in particular at Lakehead’s records from the Canadan Suomalainen Järjestö fonds
  • This project site has been launched
