VICTORIA, B.C. The CANADIAN EXPAT ASSOCIATION (CEA) has launched a new website to bring what it calls the "Canadian Diaspora" together. Explore the new site at www.TheCanadianExpat.com.

The CEA estimates there are 2.7 million Canadians living abroad. While the association says that Canadian Clubs and business organizations are present in every major city on earth, they have been disconnected from each other. The new website is a means of connecting on a global scales.

The new CEA site offers search capabilities in both English and French for global events and to locate companies working in a specific area of the world. As well, the site will contain links to articles and information of particular interest to expat Canadians.

The CEA also plays an advocacy role in Canada on behalf of expats. A few of the many issues the association has taken on include taxation, closing of Canadian consulates, cutting back on services offered to Canadians that live abroad and the recognition of academic and professional credentials acquired by Canadians at foreign institutions.
