The first exhibition of its kind "The Light of the Letters" will be launched on September 22 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The date of the opening was chosen to coincide with Bulgarian Independence Day, which will be celebrated by both the Bulgarian community and the Canadian authorities in Vancouver.

13 works dedicated to the Bulgarian alphabet will be exhibited on the occasion of the 1150th anniversary of the Great Moravian Mission of the Holy Brothers Cyril and Methodius.

The exposition "The Light of the Letters" has already been presented at the History Museum in the cities of Niagara Falls and Kitchener, Ontario, and Calgary, Alberta, with the assistance of the Bulgarian Embassy in Ottawa. The exhibition was first presented in 2013 - declared by UNESCO as the year of Cyril and Methodius who created the Slavonic alphabet.
