LETTER FROM PRESIDENT VINCENT BAI
Three years ago, when I was a student from China studying at Desautels Faculty of Managment, McGill University, I had a dream to build a bilateral platform connecting and serving young people who have an interest or are involved in Canada and China business ventures. We named this organization the Canada-China Junior Chamber of Commerce (CCJCC) and successfully registered it as a nonprofit organization under both the Canadian federal government and the Quebec provincial government.
Through the incredible dedication of the CCJCC team and generous support from our partners and supporters include bilateral governments, Canada China Chamber of Commerce and its Quebec Chapter, Canada China Business Council, Power Corporation, Huawei Canada, Sun Life Financial, Fasken Martineau, several universities and more, we are getting closer to our goal step by step. Headquartered in Montreal, with representatives in Vancouver, Shanghai and Beijing, we currently have 40 staff members across two nations serving over 1500 members consist of university-level students, young professionals and entrepreneurs. We succesfully hosted and partnered over 10 national and regional events such as the 1st and 2nd Canada-China Youth Business Forum , Trip to China and the 1st Canada-China Start-up Conference.
“Rooted in Quebec, Across the Pacific”, we plan to establish branches in more cities including Toronto, Calgary and Guangzhou in the upcoming years. In addition to individual members, we will begin to serve corporate members such as startups and SMEs, in order to promote enterpreneurship and deliver valubale resources for the growth of those passionate enterprises. Moreover, we plan to provide more valuable and diversified events in Spring 2015. Most importantly, we are forming the Board of Advisors, consisting of influential and successful figures to guide the development of CCJCC.
Helping the youth is to help the future. We sincerely thank each and every one who has helped us. We still have a long way to go, and our future achievements will not be accomplished without your support and participation. Support and join us today.
Dream it, Do it! And never stop! Sincerely,
President & Co-founder
