Slovenski Dom promotes Slovenian culture, language and heritage through cultural exhibits, language classes, literary research of Slovenian authors in Canada, seminars, social activities, empowering people of Slovenian background to get involved in community activities, promotion of voluntarism, provision of referral services for financial counseling, fraud prevention, translations, leads to Government support services, assistance in finding work for new arrivals and dissemination of information. Moya’s focus area of providing financial and banking services to the Slovenian community aligns with Slovenski Dom’s promotion of Slovenian culture, language, heritage and identity. By collaborating Moya’s financial services with Slovenski Dom’s emphasis on Slovenian culture, language, heritage, and identity will form a stronger foundation on which to build a lasting success.
Slovenski dom has held seminars for over 50 years. The seminars have been presented in various locations to live audiences. Because of COVID-19 we have changed the method of delivery of seminars. We have changed from in-situ presentations to virtual presentations. Our goal is to deliver a series of virtual seminars for the Slovenian community. The seminars are presented on YouTube on a variety of interesting topics. Because of worldwide distribution, the seminars are produced professionally to high standards.
We invite you to explore the following:
