More details about our 2018 Maple Leaf of Award of Distinction honouree and 2018 Arts and Letter Award recipient will be posted shortly.



Welcome to the home of the Maple Leaf Ball, the annual black-tie charity gala dinner for the Canadians and friends of Canada in New York.


 The Ball has a long rich history and is the largest and most important fund-raising event that supports the Canadian Association of New York Foundation. Over the years with the help of events like the Ball, the Foundation has donated over one million dollars to charities in our community.


The Arts & Letters Award is presented annually at the Maple Leaf Ball and honours a prominent Canadian from the arts, entertainment or media industries who has made a lasting impact in their field in Canada, the US and around the world. The 2017 Arts & Letters Award was presented to Mike Myers, a proud Canadian and one of the most multifaceted performers of his generation. He has brought an astonishing array of memorable characters to life in film and television as an actor, author, director, producer, writer and creator behind such iconic characters as Wayne Campbell, Austin Powers, Dr. Evil and Shrek.


We will be posting shortly about our 2018 Maple Leaf Award of Distinction honouree and our 2018 Arts & Letters Award recipient.
