About the Chinese Canadian Writers' Association (CCWA)
The Chinese Canadian Writers’ Association was co-founded in 1987 by Mr. Paul Lo and Dr. Laifong Leung, then a professor at the University of Alberta. Its current Chair is Mr. William Chan. As a registered organization in British Columbia, its mission is threefold: to create a platform of literary interaction, to encourage creative writing, and raise the level of literary appreciation. In the past thirty years, the association has held many activities including book launches, lectures, poetry recitation, film appreciations, monthly gatherings, as well as nine international symposia on Chinese Canadian literature.
