The Regina Hungarian Cultural and Social Club, located at 1925 McAra Street, first opened in 1922. It was established for the purpose of keeping Hungrian heritage and culture alive in Regina. The Club moved to its current location in 1963, where it was expanded in 1982. It is home to the Balaton Ballroom and the Regina Balaton Hungarian Dancers. The Regina Hungarian community is a small but strong one, with 300 currently registered members of the club. The members of the Regina Hungarian Club work to keep our heritage and culture alive and well through several functions each year, including Mosaic, the Harvest Festival, the Western Canadian Hungarian Folk Dance Festival, rememberances for important events in Hungary’s history, and support for the Regina Balaton Hungarian Dancers.

The Hungarian Canadian Chamber of Commerce is based in Montreal, Quebec and promotes business exchanges between Canada and Hungary. Both Canada and Hungary are very dynamic and offer excellent business opportunities. Hungary is a member of the European Union and centrally located with historical access to new markets in Eastern Europe. Similarly Quebec is a natural gateway between Europe and North America with complete access to the Canadian and American markets. The Hungarian Canadian Chamber of Commerce supports commercial exchanges between Canada and Hungary by supporting small and medium size enterprises (SMEs). SMEs are the main focus of the chamber because they create the most employment and they have the same needs as multinational corporations but not the resources.

The Hungarian Helicon Society is a membership-based organization led by volunteers. It was created by Hungarian Canadians to promote Hungarian culture, history and heritage in the Greater Toronto Area. The Hungarian Helicon Society was founded in 1951 in Toronto, Ontario by Hungarians who emigrated to Canada after World War II. Their goals were twofold. They wished to maintain their Hungarian heritage in their new home, Canada, and to introduce Canadians to their Hungarian culture and history. They also wanted to ensure that their children would know their roots, their mother tongue, and the culture and history of their parents’ homeland. To achieve these goals, the Hungarian Helicon Society promotes Hungarian education in the Greater Toronto Area, and organizes many cultural and social events, such as lectures, exhibitions, concerts, and the annual gala ball.
