Hawdy!
There are about 5K Canadians on this little Island! I am sure you will bump on somebody someday, but now its quiet time, lots of people are on vacation. You can check this out:
http://www.canadians.org.sg/cas-events.htm

1. First Friday night of every month from 7:30 pm onwards.
2. August Back to Business Networking Night with the Five Pillars of the Canadian Community

Cheers

Mirage,

That's awesome! That's alot of Canucks! I just registered myself as a part of CAS from the link you have given me. Are you an active member with the CAS as well?

It will be nice to see fellow Canadians in a foreign land. I'll be sure to take part and be in the BBN night at the Harry's bar once I touch down.

I wonder if they have Alpine... :D

There are plenty of our kinsman here and people from other countries are nice as well if they can get the "newfy talk", sorry , just kidding :-)
BBN is not always at Harry's, better to check the web before you go.

Miragee,

Once my business plan are all set and ready to go, I'll be down there soon most probably in a month or two. It depends very much on my work.

Hahaha...I'm from New Brunswick..Where are you from in Canada?

Welcome! Where you are from?
7 month here! I have a Canadian neighbor for about a year now who complained that she had been here for 3 years and haven't met any other Canadians. I bet you might be in the similar situation. So.... they are around, trust me!

We should have a bar where any Canadians that came to Sg know where to go to meet other Canadians once they land on that island.

Summer is nice here this season. Perfect for lazing at the cottage. Once winter hits, off to Sg we go again...

Hey MC Donalds, We share the same last name.

We stayed on the north end of Canada. the coldest we get here is -50 degrees celsius. This coming winter we are leaving it behind to enjoy the rainy season in Singapore instead. Hahaha!
