Our Canadian Embassy is easy to find....for our new members directions are as follows: going North on the 30 highway turn left on the third ring road and look up for the Canadian flag. The Embassy is in the building with the flag on it:) You have to turn right and come in from behind, but keep following the flag.  See you there! THERE ARE 4 SPOTS LEFT!
