The Peruvian Canadian Institute has been in development since 2015.  It aims to support and foster enhanced relations between both nations through activities such as a Distinguished Fellowship program, scholarships, educational partnerships and events in both Canada and Peru. 



The Peruvian Canadian Institute was officially launched on December 4, 2020.

 

During 2021, the 200th anniversary of Peru’s Independence, events and activities of the Peruvian Canadian Institute will focus on celebrating and highlighting outstanding contributions in culture, education, diplomatic relations, business, mining, and more. Among some of the initiatives in development to recognize the bicentennial of the Independence of Peru, are the establishment of commemorative academic awards for students in both countries, agreements with post-secondary partners in Peru, presentations of Distinguished Fellowships to citizens and/or groups in Canada and Peru.

 

Our events for 2021 kicked off on January 21st when His Excellency Roberto Rodríguez Arnillas, Ambassador of Peru to Canada, was named the inaugural recipient of a Distinguished Fellowship from the Peruvian Canadian Institute, for his contributions in the development of international relations between both countries.  The work of the Peruvian Canadian Institute continues, with planning now underway for a virtual Summit to be held May 20, 2021.  We hope you will join us!
