To The CanCham Community, In an effort to bring an important piece of Canadian culture to China, Canada’s national sport hockey, CanCham and the Shanghai Hockey Club have been jointly hosting Hockey Night in Shanghai since 2011. As two non-profit, community-founded and based organizations, our motivations were one in the same. We both aimed to host an event affordable to everyone that would bring the entire community together in celebration of promoting something truly Canadian in China.
The Feiyang Skating Center got on board as a partner of the event for both the 2013 and 2014 editions, itself being a former CanCham member. As the event continues to grow in popularity year after year, it is clear that CaCcham’s and the SHC’s years of passionate dedication have all paid off. It has since come to our attention that an almost identical event will take place this month. Images from our past events are being displayed in the marketing materials associated with it, however CanCham is not involved in its organization. Despite the promotional images used, this event is also not related to Canada.
We hope to continue hosting what has now become a community tradition. Canada is a great country with much to offer and we believe this important event helps bind hockey, Canada and China together. We thank the community for your ongoing support and hope that we will have the chance to bring this great event back in the near future.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the CanCham Office at email@example.com or 021-6075-8797.
