We are a group of people who come from mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Canadian born Chinese volunteers, bringing traditional Chinese hardworking mindset mixed with Canada’s multicultural values. We admire the kindness and tolerance, respect in everyone’s lives, care in the vulnerable groups, and warming lonely people. We hope using charitable actions diminish cultural differences, eliminate contradiction and biases. We are Chinese Canadians that strive to help others, treat everyone equally and serve our community. Thank you for your understanding. Volunteers are welcome to contact us.
