How is the Finnish Chair being financed at this time?

Kanadan Sanomat featured of late an interview with the new Finnish Studies professor at U of T. But looks like there was nothing about the status of the Chair - in terms of financing and continuity.

Fundraisings for the Finnish Studies have been a huge theme on the Finnish Canadian scene - at least Toronto and Sudbury - for over a decade. The aims were high.. And in the archives of the KS (Vapaa Sana) you will find pictures of cheques being handed over - in not insignificant amounts.

Originally the Chair was financed from Finland, but partially Canadian funding became a must long ago. The latest deal with Finland was a kind of fifty-fifty - agreed in tough negotiations with two ladies from CIMO some years ago. But that deal was for a fixed period and may have expired since.

So the KS could report the latest in the fiscal saga that so many Finnish Canadians have been part of. And a saga that has been viewed with admiration in Finland and on the Finnish expatriate scene worldwide.
