CanOSA

The "Canada-Odisha Society of Americas" (CANOSA) is a non-profit socio-cultural organization, established in 1971 and actively involved in promoting integration through social and cultural activities and providing forum for newcomers for adaptation and integration into the Canadian milieu.

Our vibrant community of over 500 Odia families (Odisha, India origin) residing in different parts of Canada, with a strong desire to cradle and nurture the rich Odia culture, even outside our homeland, provided the impetus for the formation of this society.

Our Activities

We celebrate the festivals typical to the people of Odisha (such as Bishuba Milana, Kumar Utsava) and inviting other community people to participate. We, as a community, meet at least twice annually to celebrate Bisuva Milana and Kumar Purnima besides having outdoor picnic and cottage picnic every year

Our annual functions like "Bishuba Milan", "Kumar Purnima" showcases the talent and creativity of our youth and young adult members. Where "Sahitya Patha Chakra" redefine the literary talent in the community with increasing enthusiasm.
