Culture and Heritage

The Consulate´s most important function is towards the tens of thousands of people of Icelandic descent who live in Manitoba and Western Canada to help them stay in touch with their history and heritage by giving information and facilitating cultural events.

Promotion of Icelandic culture, heritage and history continue to be important factors in the mission in Winnipeg. Every year artists, scholars and authors visit western Canada to share their art and expertise with the people of Icelandic descent.
