The 7th CPAC Education Day will be held on Oct.25

Hosted by the Education Foundation of CPAC and sponsored by HSBC Bank Canada, CPAC Education Day is the largest education related event in GTA’s Chinese Community. The main purpose of this annual event is to provide newcomer families with information on the Canadian education system and related services, helping students and parents succeed in their new life in Canada. Since its inception 6 years ago, this event has provided over 10,000 student and parents with practical information about education in this country.

The 7th CPAC Education Day will be held on October 25th, 2014 at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel (600 Highway 7 East, Richmond Hill ON L4B 1B2). To date, about thirty educational exhibitors have confirmed their attendance. More than 1500 students and parents are expected to attend this year’s event.

Education Day gives students and parents information using a range of formats. About forty schools and education related service providers are expected to attend this year’s event to let you have a face-to-face communication chance to the school representatives. A keynote presentation shared by a Harvard student plus eight breakout session workshops and a full day drop-in student forum hosted by post-secondary student’s associations are all tailored to the needs of parents and students.
