WELCOMES YOUTH WHO WINS SCHOLARSHIP ON MALTESE CANADIAN MIGRATION

 

Maltese Canadian history has been a story of a humble people who left a tiny country in the Mediterranean – The Maltese Islands and became a success story thousands of kilometers away in the second largest country on world - Canada.   This story is the history, heritage and identity of 147,000 Maltese Canadians being preserved, unveiled and transmitted to future generations by a commendable initiative of the board of Leħen Malti TV in Canada lead by Chairperson Joe Sherri by means of a scholarship offered to Maltese Canadian youths. 

 

The Consul General of the Republic of Malta to Canada, Dr Raymond C. Xerri welcomed the winner of this scholarship, Maltese Canadian youth Nigel Klemenčič-Puglisevich at the Consulate General in Toronto, Ontario.  Consul General Dr Xerri augured M​r Klemenčič-Puglisevich for his work and promised the Consulate General’s assistance in continuing his research into the Maltese Canadian story and besides the making available specialised research from Maltese Canadian Library available at the Consulate, Consul General Xerri provided Mr Klemenčič-Puglisevich with copies of important publications related to the third and fourth Conventions for Maltese Living Abroad organised in 2000 and 2015 respectively.

 

Mr Klemenčič-Puglisevich thanked Consul General Dr Xerri for welcoming him, offering assistance to enhance his research, for the publications and for the initiative taken by the Consulate General of Malta in establishing the specialised Maltese Canadian migration specialised library.
