February 2nd was our third anniversary. Thank you to everyone who has supported Steampunk Canada these past 3 years!

At Steampunk Canada right now we have a number of new member photos and videos and...

We have a sneak peek at an upcoming retelling of OZ from Canadian publisher Arcana....

...and Psyche Corporation has recently released a new and fantastic album - Crypts and Codes.

Is there any word yet on the Victoria, BC Steamcon?  I'm not sure what it was called last year, but I missed it by a couple months.  I didn't get into steampunk, or find this wonderful site till June.

I found a link for the Victoria Steam Exposition.  Nothing is set yet but they have an e-mailing list.

They should have at least the date up now. They are definitely holding it again in 2013.

I went to the tickets page, here's what I'm seeing: 

Friday, 31 May 2013 at 8:00 PM (PDT)
Victoria, BC

Up in the corner it says May 31 to June 2, 2013.

And this:  Victoria Event Centre
1415 Broad St
Victoria, BC V8W 2B2
Canada
Friday, 31 May 2013 at 8:00 PM (PDT)

There's still no info on events, vendors or "attractions".

I expect they'll have something up soon. The event organizers are great people. If you need more information sooner, definitely email them.

The Friday night part at The Bard and Banker sounds like a lot of fun.  I've been there and it's a great building.  They took a 33,000 sq ft (or something to that effect) that was pretty much ruined and made this old-worldy timey-wimey pub.  It's quite nice :)

A few of us are considering a SteamPunk road trip to the moderately steamy town of White Horse in the Yukon and very steamy town of Skagway, Alaska.  http://www.thesteampunkempire.com/group/arctic-alaska-steam/forum/topics/skagway-white-horse-meetup?commentId=2442691%3AComment%3A1486200&xg_source=activity&groupId=2442691%3AGroup%3A1154260

IF there are any good folks in the White Horse area, we would glad to have you join us for all or part of this little adventure.

Hello there!

There is a rather large group in Montreal. You can find them on Facebook.  I am in Ottawa and we have a rather large and lively group as well.  I do hope you can join one of our groups for an event some time soon. 

I'm not familiar with Malartic, Quebec. Is it close to either Ottawa or Montreal?

Just wanted to give you the heads up: There's a Steampunk Social coming up June 15th, 2013 in Sherbrooke, NS. I started a new thread here; could you please post it on Steampunk Canada too? I have nothing whatsoever to do with it, just came across it; but it's in my own best interests to have successful Steampunk events in my general area, heh heh. Also, I want to find other Steampunks in the Annapolis Valley, NS! And they might come out to this. I certainly hope to! :)
