April 2017 will welcome representatives of the Australian High Commission to Winnipeg for passport interviews and an alumni networking event.
This is a wonderful opportunity for Australians in Manitoba to renew your passport and address any notarial issues in Winnipeg without incurring the cost of travelling to Ottawa, Toronto or Vancouver.
You do need to book an appointment online for a passport interview on Friday April 28, and to RSVP for the alumni event as soon as possible. All details available by clicking on the poster.

What are you doing on Australia Day? If you have nothing else planned for Thursday January 26, think about going to Miss Browns at 288 William Street in downtown Winnipeg.
Drop in anytime between 7:30 am and 3:00 pm, stay a while, and enjoy the deliciousness of their menu, which will include meat pies and other Aussie favs.
Have you tried their Aussie burger yet? 🙂
Miss Browns is owned and operated by Jenny (Canadian) and Steve (Australian), and they have an excellent menu that many of us have already sampled. Every January 26, they put on a slightly more downunder flavour for everyone to enjoy.
Last year a group of us from the DUCW went there for lunch, and are planning a repeat this year, so stay tuned for that.
In the meantime, head to Miss Browns on Thursday. Their meat pies are great, mate!
