Administrative history

The Icelandic National League of North America (INLNA), established in 1919 as a non-political, cultural organization, strives to promote Icelandic heritage, culture, and traditions in communities in North America. Their main purposes are to promote community citizenship, and promote understanding, co-operation, and cultural exchange between those of Icelandic heritage and the people of Iceland. INLNA’s head office is located in Gimli, Manitoba. The INLNA Vancouver chapter operates from the Icelandic Care Home Höfn Society in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Scope and content

Subfonds reflects the support the Vancouver Chapter of the Icelandic National League of North America has provided to cultural activities in the Icelandic community of Vancouver. INLNA holds executive meetings, annual conventions, and maintains an email listserv, sharing news and information of various communities. They also maintain a website and social media presence. INLNA has published an Icelandic Heritage Calendar, and has implemented programs such as the INL Reads Program, Donald K. Johnson Film Screening Program, Icelandic Settlement Tours Program, Snorri West youth program and several international visit and audio programs. Additionally, INLNA grants a yearly scholarship, the Laurence S. G. Johnson Lifetime Achievement Award, originally initiated in 2003 to be bestowed upon a recipient for contributions not only to the Icelandic Community and the community at large.

Subfonds is arranged into four series: Administrative records, Conference and convention records, Publications, and Photographs. Subfonds also contains one file of records pertaining to the Viking Association, Uff-Dah.
