Founded in September 1999 by a small group of passionate Canadians, the Digital Moose Lounge (DML) is a non-profit social impact and professional networking platform for Canadians living in the San Francisco Bay Area.
We facilitate connection points between Canadian individuals, Canadian cultural organizations and alumni networks, and we're a hub for information and activities that are of interest to Canadians.
A sample of what we do:
- promote, educate, and support our members with on social impact causes and volunteer opportunities that benefit our local community
- host a Canada Day event each year featuring special Canadian guests
- cheer on Canadian teams at hockey games and occasionally hit the ice ourselves
- hear thought-provoking speakers at our salon-style Chesterfield Chats series
- socialize over informal happy hours around the Bay Area
- collect and share intel about Canadian-focused concerts, alumni gatherings, lectures, information sessions and more
- help members connect with each other through our new membership directory
What our members say about us:
The Annual All-Alumni Reception is always a fun event and I particularly enjoy hearing the stories of those who are founding companies here in Silicon Valley. Makes me proud to be a Canadian.
I loved the speakers! All in all, the event was absolutely fantastic. It was the first DML event I've attended and I will definitely be coming to more.
Very well organized tax information session and very friendly people.
DML was really helpful after I moved to the Bay Area ... I met my husband through a DML Canada Day event!
It is soul-filling to have so many people and organizations gather in honor of our shared heritage and values.
