The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan was established in 1983 by a group of Canadians, in answer to the absence of official Canadian representation in Taiwan at that time.
Since its inception, the Chamber has grown from an organization providing basic support to Canadians on the island, to a Chamber serving the needs of all Canadians and friends of Canada in Taiwan. In 1984, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan was officially registered with the Ministry of the Interior as a foreign association – the first of its kind in Taiwan.
The aim of the CanCham is to provide a forum for Canadians and friends of Canada to meet and interact on issues of common interest. We aim to support fellow members with their business, family, social, educational or cultural needs. We promote goodwill and understanding between the people of Canada and Taiwan, and provide the opportunity for interaction to develop strong cultural, social and business ties.
