LNAK (Latvian National Federation in Canada)
The Web site of the Latvian National Federation in Canada (Latviešu nacionālā apvienība Kanādā, or LNAK) is not new, but has been recently revamped by Toronto-based insixmedia. The site briefly outlines the aims of the LNAK, informs of Latvian-Canadian events and provides news from Canada and Latvia. Also offered are a discussion forum that appears to be so new that it is still waiting for participants, archives of LNAK minutes and reports, an invitation to leave a legacy to the organisation and contact details for all those active members of the LNAK who have taken up positions in various capacities.

LNJAK (Latvian National Youth Association in Canada)

Among features of the site are a calendar of events, a small directory of Web sites and a couple of photo galleries of Latvian-Canadian youth activities. There's also an off-site discussion forum.

Montreālas latviešu Trīsvienības ev.-lut. draudze
The Trinity Latvian Ev.-Lutheran Church in Montréal appears to be an active and progressive one and has the right idea about informing its parishioners. The Web site offers the latest church bulletin, Draudzes ziņas, and a calendar that gives an insight into the regular activities of the congregation. The church also owns a 200-acre rural retreat, Tervete, in Argenteuil County, Québec, halfway between Montréal and Ottawa. Tērvete, among other things, is the venue for the annual children's summer camp with the same name. LV (Reviewed July 2005)
St. Andrew’s Ev. Lutheran Latvian Congregation
Sv. Jāņa ev.-lut. latviešu draudze Toronto
This property in the Laurentian Mountains of Québec is no doubt the scene for many glorious childhood memories of the younger generation of North American Latvian community. Now Tērvete has its own Web site to inform anyone interested in visiting, revisiting or participating in the children's camp during the summer. Check out the calendar to see what's been planned for the coming months or why not click through some snaps made of smiling, happy campers in the past few years? FR LV (Reviewed November 2002)
Toronto Latvian Concert Association
Toronto Latvian Saturday School
In her opening address beginning the 52nd academic year of the Toronto Latvian Saturday School, Principal Moira Campbell summed up its collaborative spirit: "Here we don't have any bank presidents or 'Madame Ambassadors.' We are all people who have one purpose. This is a place where titles and occupations are put aside and we work as one team. This is a wonderful thing, for together we have the power to accomplish anything. Maybe this is the key of knowledge!" Find out what these third-generation Latvian kids in Toronto do most Saturday mornings, who their teachers are and who was in the graduating Class of 2001. This is one of two Latvian primary schools that operate in Toronto. The other one is called Valodiņa. Interesting future additions to the site could be samples of the children's work, more school photos or even a short video clip of a school function. EN LV (Reviewed March 2002)
