Western Washington University’s Canada House is buzzing with excitement over the upcoming CANADA WEEK! Scheduled for March 4–9, 2019, CANADA WEEK makes its return to Western’s campus after a few years’ hiatus with a list of exciting campus and community-wide events.

There will be a film series, including a screening of Zachary Richard, toujours batailleur and discussion with filmmaker Phil Comeau, as well as a screening of Haida language film Sgaawaay K’uuna (Edge of the Knife).

Some outstanding Canadian authors will also be visiting Bellingham, including Terese Marie Mailhot to discuss her recent book Heart Berries and Sophie Labelle to share her web comic Assigned Male. As well, CANADA WEEK will hold lectures, student–faculty connection events and fieldtrips.

Finally, K-12 education and curriculum specialist Kyla Sweet will host an event with local schoolteachers.
