One hundred and fifty Canadians, Monegasques and international friends of Canada came together on July 1 as part of the 150th anniversary celebrations of the Canadian Confederation. The Fairmont Hotel Monte-Carlo was the venue for this unique moment.

In the presence of Prince Albert, Graeme Clark, Minister Plenipotentiary of the Embassy of Canada in Paris, emphasised the quality of bilateral relations and the commonalities between the two countries, especially their cultural diversity.

As a symbol of Canadian attachment to the sovereign, Prince Albert and Liliane Godbout, a member of the Canadian Club of Monaco since its founding, unveiled a portrait of the Princely couple and their twins, made by artist Stéphanie Van Zyl at the request of the Consulate of Canada in Monaco, represented by Marc Devito, Honorary Consul of Canada in Monaco, and the Canadian Club of Monaco, represented by its President, France Rioux.

Later in the evening a barbecue was held with a view of the sea, accompanied by the jazz ensemble of Zhang Zhang, the talented Canadian violinist and a member of the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra.
