GIVING CANADIANS IN SHANGHAI THE COMFORTS OF CANADA

As the director of “CanCham” Carley Pulford needs to think on her feet — her organization usually gets only a few days notice that a Canadian Federal Cabinet Minister will be travelling to Shanghai or even the Prime Minister. CanCham plans high profile events that support Canadian business and community interests in China and for these events, Carley needs to ensure the right people are in the room to greet guests of honour. When CanCham isn’t bringing politicians and business people together, they pull off events that give Canadians a little slice of home. Last Fall, CanCham experienced success with their event “Hockey Night in Shanghai” which saw a record crowd of 1500 and put smiles on the faces of Canadian expats. They also host Christmas every year to keep that tradition alive and even hosted a Kraft Dinner night recently — yes they have macaroni in China, but it’s just not the same as KD! We’ll hear about the work Carley and Sharon do at CanCham and also learn about why they moved to Shanghai from BC and never looked back!
