The Canada Bangladesh Alumni Association (CBAA) hosted an evening of connection and celebration at Acoustic Social 2 on Wednesday.

With over 60 alumni from prominent Canadian universities such as the University of Toronto, University of British Columbia, Western Ontario, and more in attendance, the event exemplified the enduring spirit of collaboration and friendship between Canada and Bangladesh.

The highlight of the evening was a mesmerizing acoustic performance by Montreal-based Bangladeshi musician Dameer, accompanied by his father Pilo Khan, of the famous Renaissance band.

Their soulful melodies captivated the audience, creating an ambiance of harmony and togetherness. 

Shayaan Seraj, secretary general of CBAA, presented a special gift to The Canada Club and the High Commission: a customized map of the tri-state area, featuring the High Commission prominently marked by the Flag of Canada.

It was done by a Bangladeshi artist who studied in Toronto.

This gesture symbolized the strong bond between the two nations and the commitment to further strengthen bilateral relations.

Senior Trade Commissioner Debra Boyce commended the gathering, stating: "It is wonderful to see all the alumni in Dhaka come together and continue the bonds they formed in Canada."

The sentiment was echoed by Shayaan Seraj, who emphasized CBAA's mission to provide an engaged platform facilitating relationships between Canada and Bangladesh across various sectors including education, trade, and culture. 

The event was graced by the presence of esteemed dignitaries including the High Commissioner of Canada Lilly Nicholls, and executive committee members of CBAA, namely Mahira, Taufiq, Nabil, Eazaz, and Amreen, who contributed to the success of the evening.

Acoustic Social 2 underscored the importance of fostering connections and collaborations beyond borders, demonstrating the potential for mutual growth and understanding between Canada and Bangladesh.

CBAA looks forward to continuing its efforts in building a vibrant community that transcends geographical boundaries and celebrates the rich tapestry of friendship and partnership between the two countries.
