The All-Canada University (ACU) Association is comprised of graduates of Canadian universities from all across Canada. We hold an annual event each spring bringing together alumni and their companions for a festive dinner in Washington, DC.
Why Come to the Event?
Alumni come from as far as Pennsylvania and West Virginia to attend the event for fun, camaraderie, to share stories and connect with others from far flung parts of Canada. The venues have ranged from somewhat formal sit down dinners to country-style square dances to cocktail parties.
This website contains updates on the upcoming annual event, registration details and other information relating to the both upcoming and past events.
