FAQDo I need to be Canadian?
Do I need to be a MIT student?
Of course not! You just need to have an interest for the Canadian culture and/or be interested in meeting nice people.
Does it cost anything?
No you don't but you should know that there are voting and non-voting members in our club and that there are some restrictions on who can be a voting member. Non voting members can still take part in all activities and enjoy the club like anyone else. For more information you should look at our constitution.
Am I obligated to anything by becoming a member?
No, becoming a member is completly free though some activities are not fully subsidized by the club and thus require a contribution. In case where you can't afford the activity but still want to come, let us know about it and we will see if we can help you out.
Why should I become a member?
No, except receiving club emails once in a while.
What kind of activities do you organize?
To have fun with us, meet nice people, expand your network, enjoy free BBQs and other social events. Because you like hockey and your heart pumps pure Canadian maple syrup.
I am not into Hockey, can I still be part of your Club?
We are open to everything. The two founders of the club are hockey maniacs so of course we will attend hockey games, have hockey nights and play hockey. We also like to organize BBQs and other social events. Activities don't necessarily have to be related to the Canadians culture even if we give such activities priority. If you have anything in mind let us know or even better: become an office and help us organize them.
Can people who are not part of the Canadians Club still participate in your activities?
Of couse you can, we fully understand that nobody is perfect :) . Even more we would encourage you to become an active member so that you can share your input with us.
Absolutely, we welcome your friends and family even if they are not members. We would encourage them to join the group though. Also, for activities where room and/or funding is limited, priority will be given to members. For more information, please look at our constitution.
