    September 16: Saimen presents the 10th Annual Maple Leaf Ball Confederation Heritage // La belle Époque

    The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai presents the 10th Annual Maple Leaf Ball: Confederation Heritage

    La Chambre de commerce canadienne à Shanghai présente le 10e Bal annuel de la Feuille d’érable: Confédération Héritage


    Mark your calendars and join us for a classy evening of toasts, good cheer, dancing and a gourmet heritage menu. The ball will take place at the beautiful Peace Hall in the historic Fairmont Peace Hotel on Saturday, 16th of September.

    Marquez vos calendriers pour nous rejoindre pour une soirée classique, festive et pour déguster un menu gourmet canadien. L’événement se tiendra au majestueux et historique hôtel Fairmont Peace le 16 Septembre prochain.
    The year 2017 marks the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada, also known as Canada 150. What better way to honour Canada’s sesquicentennial than exploring 150 years of cultural heritage through the senses? This year’s Maple Leaf Ball will transport guests into the late 19th and early 20th centuries and evoke the glamorous cocktail parties and banquets of this era. History will be resurrected as a feast for the senses, and guests will cherish regional culture and flavors in celebration of Canada 150. Celebrate the anniversary with style, while raising your glass to the rich cultural history from coast to coast.
    Dress code: During La belle Époque (or Age of Opulence), elaborate couture gowns (from houses like Poiret and Worth) crafted from luxe materials were not uncommon for high society women… For that set, special occasions were meant to be celebrated, and these evening pieces eliminated the restricting corsetry of the past, added ornate embellishments, and encouraged women to dance.
    着装要求:在那个富裕的年代,由奢侈昂贵的材料精心制作的时装礼服(出自Poiret 和 Worth之手)对于上流社会的女性而言并不罕见。特殊的场合意在庆祝,这些晚宴服也消除了过往只能穿紧身衣料的束缚,添上了很多华丽的装饰,鼓励女士徜徉于舞池中。

    Photos: An Evening with the Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture

    CanCham was pleased to host the Minister of Agriculture, The Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, this past Sunday, November 6th, on the rooftop of The Fairmont Peace Hotel in Shanghai. CanCham members, members of the Minister’s delegation, and distinguished guests were invited to a cocktail reception for networking with the purpose to increase business and economic relations between China and Canada. The Honourable Lawrence MacAulay delivered a speech addressing his goals for his trade mission, which included a visit to the Shanghai Food and Beverage show the following day. Minister MacAulay is leading the largest ever trade mission from Canada to China, with approximately 100 people in his delegation. This is his second visit to China as Minister of Agriculture, his first accompanying Justin Trudeau in a visit to cities across China and culminating in the G20 summit held in Hangzhou, Jiangsu province. For Minister MacAulay’s current visit, he is spending 10 days in China and visiting four major cities: Qingdao, Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Thank you to The Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, The Consulate of Canada in Shanghai, our members, and guests for making this evening possible.

During the luncheon, The Honourable Chrystia Freeland gave an insightful and positive speech about the future of Canadian-Chinese economic relations.
