CPAC Receives $10,000 from Citi for Immigrant Service and Advocacy

TORONTO, October 3, 2023 – CPAC gratefully acknowledges the donation of $10,000 from Citibank Canada from the funds it has raised through its annual charity golf tournament. A ceremonial cheque presentation took place last Thursday at the Angus Glen Golf Course.

Citibank Canada, a stalwart supporter of Canadian non-profit/charity organizations, hosted its annual charity golf tournament to benefit communities across the nation. CPAC is one of the five selected beneficiaries with diverse missions in community service, advocacy, environment, LGBTQ and women’s issues. 

“This gift is deeply appreciated,” remarked Andi Shi, Executive Director of CPAC, at the cheque presentation ceremony. “With this support, we will do more in serving newcomer professionals and racialized youth and working towards a more inclusive Canadian society.”

CPAC, formerly known as the Chinese Professionals Association of Canada, is a multi-dimensional organization that is an association of professionals, a career service provider, and a developing think tank. For over 30 years, CPAC has been serving the community of internationally educated professionals and racialized youth with their credential recognition, licensure, skills upgrading, cultural integration, employment, professional development and leadership development. The organization now has close to 31,000 members from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds with a wide range of professional training and skills. CPAC also facilitates, through CPAC Institute, the understanding and elimination of systemic racism and barriers to equity, diversity and inclusion, through research, education and training, with the goal of achieving the full potential of a diverse and inclusive Canadian society.
