Did you know that Canada has its own Haiku organization?

Haiku Canada publishes a twice-yearly newsletter, the Haiku Canada Review, and an annual membership anthology.

Along with the publications, Haiku Canada offers educational resources, an annual weekend conference and two annual haiku competitions: The Betty Drevniok Award — in memory of Betty Drevniok, past president of the society and Le Prix Jocelyne Villeneuve a pioneer of French-Canadian haiku.
