Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Toronto
Home for the West to Meet the East
the Past to Meet the Future
The Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Toronto (CCC) is a non-profit and non-political organization. Since its inception in 1998, CCC has been a cultural hub for diverse ethnicities in Greater Toronto Area. CCC helps Canadians of Chinese heritage appreciate all facets of their own culture and nurture a mutual respect and understanding between Chinese Canadians and Canadian of other heritage, with the ultimate goal of unity and prosperity. CCC is not an ongoing government funded organization. With only few staff and the great support of the Board of Governors, Advisors, Directors and volunteers, CCC has to rely on donations, sponsorships, holding activities and running interest classes to fulfill its mission and operate the Centre cost-effectively.
