Welcome to the MIT Canadians Club!

Our mission is to connect the Canadian community at MIT across traditional departmental boundaries. We organize social, educational and professional activities for on-campus (and local-area) Canadians and friends of Canada to meet and establish new academic/entreprenuerial collaborations or friendships. We also organize cultural and Canadian-themed events to help bring a slice of the true, north, strong, and free to MIT's campus. Sign up for our mailing lists to stay informed about our events! Feel free to send us an email to suggest an event or become more involved.

Note, the event is generously sponsored by TD Bank, who would like to get the word out to Canadians in the USA about their new cross-border banking capabilities:

Banking capabilities for joint (cross-border) TD Bank and TD Canada Trust Customer.
  • Ability to wire via phone up to $100,000 free of charge between personal accounts.
  • Ability to view both accounts through one sign in.
  • Ability to use TD's ATMs free of charge in both countries.
  • Ability to apply for a US credit card on the basis of your Canadian credit history.
The general manager of the Central Square branch will attend to give a 5min overview during the first period break and you can ask your questions about cross-border banking with TD.

Hope to see you there!
