The Chinese National Council
The Chinese Canadian National Council-London Chapter was established in 1981 as a founding member of a network of similar organizations across the country to support a central committee in Toronto. From its original mandate on advocacy for social justice, the London CCNC has evolved to become a focus in the City of London that promotes Chinese culture and celebrates Chinese heritage. Through the London Chinese Cultural Centre it serves the broader community in London to meet the needs of Chinese Canadians and to promote multicultural partnerships. Membership has grown to embrace all ethnic backgrounds. Our vision is a Chinese Canadian community that celebrates its heritage, embraces diversity and builds bridges across communities.
As a not-for-profit organization, CCNC-London relies on volunteers from the community and the student bodies to support the many ethno-cultural social activities and functions throughout the year. Some of the programs/activities supported are Tai Chi, CCNC choir, Chinese musical ensemble, traditional lion dance, Chinese calligraphy and painting. Key events are organized throughout the year, starting with the annual Dragon Gala to welcome the Chinese New Year, the dragon boat races, the Seniors celebration, the Mid Autumn Moon Festival, London Multiculture Days event, Children’s Christmas Party, and Volunteer appreciation dinner, etc. We aim to promote a vibrant “community within a community”.
