Thank you for joining us at our Chinese New Year Celebration & Open House Event! We had over 100 people attend to watch a number of performances, eat food and participate in fun activities like calligraphy, lantern and craft making. Here are some pictures from the event.
We also hosted a successful Elder Care Research Pamphlet launch, with over 50 participants. This pamphlet highlights 3 key scenarios between caregivers and seniors from our research and aims to encourage discussion on elder care within Chinese families. We are currently distributing copies of the pamphlet. If you are interested in obtaining copies for yourself or your clients, please let us know. An online version of the pamphlet will also be available.
This month, we are hosting an upcoming CATIE workshop that offers important Hepatitis C information to the Chinese community. This educational workshop is occurring on Wednesday March 30th, 4:30pm - 6pm at Dorset Park Community Hub (1911 Kennedy Road, Unit 5, Scarborough) and is FREE. We will also provide refreshments. Please RVSP with Melissa Lai at firstname.lastname@example.org
On March 31, 2016, Equity Toronto is hosting a Toronto Equity Forum. At this event each of the four communities (South Asian, Hispanic, African and Chinese Canadian) will provide important analysis and discussion on 4 key City strategies: Youth Equity, Poverty Reduction, Strong Neighbourhood and Seniors. We are still looking for participants to engage in the small group discussions. If you have work experience or personal knowledge in one of these areas, please consider joining. This is an opportunity for marginalized communities to have their voices heard at the City. If you need Chinese interpretation in order to participate, please contact us.
Thank you for your support and we hope to see you soon!
