Discover the best of the Canadian contemporary culture!

The Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris was officially opened on April 2, 1970, at 5 rue de Constantine opposite the Esplanade des Invalides. The Canadian Cultural Centre is the cultural section of the Canadian Embassy in France.

A bit of history: Jules Léger, Ambassador of Canada to France, first had the idea in 1964 to found a cultural centre in France in order to dynamize and reinforce expanding Franco-Canadian cultural relations. The signature of the Franco-Canadian Cultural Agreement in November 1965 gave birth to the project, which was officially announced on the occasion of the Centennial of Canada’s Confederation on July 1, 1967.

Why is this center worth visiting?

This Cultural center offers a unique possibility to discover the great work of Canadian artists (like movie director Xavier Dolan), sometimes very famous accross the Atlantic but totally unknown in France. The centre is a meeting point for the disciplines, languages and living cultures of all the provinces and territories of Canada.

With a solid average of four contemporary exhibitions per year, this cultural center focuses on both Canadian and European matters and news. Furthermore, the center helps build a strong collaboration between Canadian and French artists and creativity.

The cultural activities of the Canadian Cultural Centre are also part of major French and European events, including the Nuit Blanche, the Mois de la Photo à Paris, the European Night of Museums, the Fête de la Musique, the Cannes International Film Festival and the Semaine des Cultures Étrangères.

The access to the Canadian Cultural Centre is open and there is no admittance fee.
