The Action, Chinese Canadians Together (ACCT) Foundation
Established in 2017, the Action, Chinese Canadians Together (ACCT) Foundation is a non-partisan organization that builds the capacity of Chinese Canadian leaders committed to creating a more equitable society in Canada. We facilitate capacity building programs across the country, host leadership conferences, and provide a platform where work in academia can inform work in the community.
We bring together established and emerging Chinese Canadian leaders to collaborate on identifying and breaking down systemic barriers to the full and equal participation of ethno-cultural leaders in Canadian society. We honour and celebrate the ground-breaking achievements of past and present Chinese Canadian leaders in society and equip the next generation of leaders with a keen sense of how their culture shapes and strengthens their leadership. We are committed to eradicating racism and hatred in all its forms in Canada.
To inspire (self identified) Chinese Canadians to engage in Canadian society by creating pathways for transformative leadership development towards a more equitable and inclusive Canada.
Empowering Chinese-Canadians to participate, engage and have pride in all spheres of contemporary Canadian society.
Ensuring Chinese-Canadian representation in building an equitable and inclusive Canada.
The ACCT Foundation formed in 2017 with the aim to contribute towards Canada’s vision for an inclusive society by:

- creating community resources and building capacity; and
- furthering education on racial equality of minorities including Chinese Canadians.
