This is the first time HOMSA has organized an exchange activity that attracts the participation of many countries and is also meaningful since the COVID-19 pandemic ended.

HOMSA was established to create opportunities for wives and husbands of the diplomatic corps in Canada to meet, interact, and learn about Canada and social life in Canada.

Since its establishment, they have made many contributions through various activities, especially supporting and helping charitable organizations.

According to HOMSA President Carine Kjelsen, HOMSA coordinated with a Canadian charity organization to organize a charity fair to support indigenous people, especially newly married women.

The event was prepared elaborately and held on Mother's Day to make the activity more meaningful. Vietnam has two young businesses operating in the field of tea and coffee, Cactus Café and Song Hy Tra, attending this event.

The fair attracted the participation of more than 30 foreign offices in Canada, with its proceeds to be contributed to the fund for local women.

The HOMSA is set to create opportunities for spouses of diplomats in Canada to meet, interact, and learn about the host country.
