About this event

This on-line series features Chinese Canadian speakers/facilitators from British Columbia who possess unique perspectives related to resilience, health and well-being. By looking at our Chinese Canadian heritage, present-day lives, and future generations, this series highlights key topics that contribute to the enduring resilience of Chinese Canadians.

Each session begins with an introduction to the speaker/facilitator and their personal background. Sessions are scheduled for 60 minutes, followed by an optional 30 minute “conversation space” where community members can reflect, share comments and exchange personal experiences.

Register for this series to learn more about resilience, health and well-being of Chinese Canadians; reflect upon your own cultural connections and identity; and connect with a community of like-minded people!
