Thank You For Attending CANS Spring Fling!

Nothing beats the buzz in the air at an in-person event and we had a blast reconnecting with all who attended the 2022 CANS Brandt Tractor Spring Fling on Thursday, April 28!

Nearly 180 guests joined CANS for presentations and dinner at the Membertou Trade and Convention Center. We were pleased to have Membertou Cultural Ambassador David Meuse, CBRM Mayor Amanda McDougall and NSCC Marconi Campus Principal Carla Arsenault as our three guest speakers, in addition to Building Futures for Youth (BFY) program updates from BFY Program Lead Adam Gilbert, and a welcome by CANS President and CEO Duncan Williams.

Entertainment by Andrew Doyle and Cory Keeping concluded the evening with some fun, Cape Breton music!
