A couple of months ago, a specialized Maltese Canadian Library was established by the Consul General of the Republic of Malta to Canada with the aim of assisting Maltese Canadian academics and students studying Maltese Canadian diaspora history and their ancestors. Donations of publications, multimedia tools and educational aids have been entrusted to the Library. 

Several students of all academic levels have already made use of this resourceful library and have been assisted and encouraged by the Consulate General of Malta to Canada to pursue their studies in one or more aspects of Maltese Canadian Diaspora history.

Teresa Bugelli, who established the Malta Cultural Club of Durham donated publications to the library from her family collection which was passed to her by her father Joe Bugelli. Consul General Dr Raymond C. Xerri thanked President Bugelli for this much welcomed and timely initiative and encouraged others to follow by example.
