Thanks to the visit of the IPN delegation to Canada and as a result of close cooperation with the Polish Consulate in Toronto, the "Trails of Hope. The Odyssey of Freedom" exhibition was presented in Roncesvalles during the Polish Festival on 17—18 September 2022. The exhibition was displayed in the Parish Hall of St. Casimir's Church in Toronto, which is located on the main Roncesvalles Avenue, where the festival was held.
Educational materials and publications provided by the IPN’s Office of International Cooperation were presented during the festival. Board games and jigsaw puzzles were of great interest to Polish children in Canada.
Organizers reported that more than 500,000 people had visited the event during the festival weekend. The Roncesvalles Polish Festival, included fan favorites, like Polka and pierogi, in conjunction with a fresh focus to celebrate a broader range of local artists and musicians.
It has been one of Toronto's largest celebrations of food, art and Polish heritage in the city's best neighborhood, Roncesvalles Village, and in the entire Ontario State.
