There used to be a Polish 'directory' - phone numbers, small ads, helpful tips about life in Canada - that sort of thing.
We still have our copy from the year we left.

Miss Polonia Vancouver 08 takes place on september 27 in White Rock, Surrey, the winner goes to Poland to compete for Miss Poland. Don't Worry, all contenders must be fully Polish to some degree, so no mud bloods will compete

Do you know where in White Rock this will take place? I wouldn't mind checking it out with some family.

That in itself is contradictory. How can you be "fully Polish to some degree"??????

I doubt the validity of the Miss Polonia Vancouver. Nothing on Google about it.

More gaps-
there is no way the 08 competition would be in September. And why would it be in White Rock (SURREY) nowhere near Vancouver.

Miss Polonia Canada 2008 Finals took place on April 6th, 2008, 5pm at The Polish Cultural Centre in Mississauga.

I think the "guest" poster was just trying out their comedic skills by saying "mud bloods"

Guest was right, there will be a Miss Polonia competition happening in September, and the event is now advertised in polish weeklies.

BTW is anyone on

There's Zgoda's disco Saturdays, but I went last Saturday and it was closed without notice, so a bunch of us had a private party.

As for the Miss Polonia contest..I saw pictures of the contestants in the Polish paper and only one looked fresh faced. I believe there are more pretty Polish girls out there. They just didn't try enough to find them.

I my self attend Russian events. The Polaks are there too, and the events are not lame. :-)

why don't you go to the Polish church and see if you can find any there.

there are a good number in North Van- but they also seem to be well spread out in Vancouver.

A few years late, but I’m here now if you’re still around!

Hey! I just moved here recently and have been doing a bit of research. Turns out there is a small community here that’s somewhat active. They’re organizing a talk on Polish post-Solidarność literature at UBC this weekend: greencollege(dot)ubc(dot)ca(slash)whats_on(slash)index(slash)events837 (dot)php. It will feature Bill Johnston (en(dot)wikipedia(dot)org(slash)wiki(slash)Bill_Johnston_%28translator %29), a highly decorated translator who loves Polish writing. I can’t make this particular event but PM me if you’re interested in this sort of stuff and I can let you know when the next one is happening!

As an aside, I met Prof. Johnston at Poland in the Rockies a few years ago (youtube(dot)com(slash)watch?v=-ph-Sd63Leo&t=14s) and must say he was one of the highlights of the entire program (which is saying a lot). Highly recommended!

(Sorry for the jumbled links; it’s not letting me post them in full.)

Is there any Polish nightclubs in Vancouver? I live in Surrey and there's 3 Polish stores five minutes away from my house, we moved from Poland in 94 (when I was 7) but I've never met any Polish people here. Where is everybody?
