CanCham Shanghai to Hold 6th Annual Canadian Alumni Mixer 2014

Shanghai, February 12, 2014 - On Thursday, March 6th, 2014, the Alumni Committee of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai (CanCham Shanghai) will hold its 6th Annual Canadian Alumni Mixer from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM at the Four Seasons Hotel in Shanghai. The price is 60 RMB for Members and 100 RMB for Non-Members. The event expects to attract more than 150 Canadian alumni.
According to the Canadian government, Canada annually welcomes over 250,000 international students, of which more than 80,000 are Chinese and represent the largest group of foreign students. These figures do not include short term students who come to learn English and French.
“Helping alumni from Canadian universities stay connected to Canada is important to strengthening our ties with China. They enrich both Canada and China culturally, but they can also contribute to our bilateral economic growth with their expertise and knowledge,” says CanCham Shanghai Executive Director Carley Pulford.
“I had a great experience studying in Canada,” says Lu Zheng, an alumnus from Saint Mary’s University in Halifax. “The Canadian government encourages people from international backgrounds to share their home cultures with local communities. This offers the opportunity for Chinese students to live and study not only in a western world, but also in an international context.”
The Annual Canadian Alumni Mixer is an opportunity for alumni to network with each other and connect with successful Canadian university graduates in China. The event will also feature ice breaker activities that highlight the Year of the Horse. To register for the event, alumni can email Event Coordinator Lane Baumeister at lane@cancham.asia.
