CSA Group Sponsors Taiwan Canadian Trade Committee “Celebration Canada” Event to Commemorate Canada Day
Money raised will support Pearl S. Buck Foundation Taiwan
July 1 is the 149th celebration of Canada Day marking Canada’s Confederation in 1867. To celebrate, CSA Group, a leading standards development organization and a global provider of testing and certification services, is sponsoring the Canada Day event “Celebration Canada” organized by the Taiwan Canadian Trade Committee.
The event is the largest foreign National Day celebration in Taiwan and is a free full-day event featuring live music, dancers and fireworks. CSA Group is selling ice-cream onsite to raise money for the Pearl S. Buck Foundation Taipei (PSBF). PSBF provides settlement programs for new immigrant families including: financial support, scholarships, language and interpretation services and career guidance.
“CSA Group started operations in Canada in 1919 with our first standard on railway bridges,” said Frances Hung Vice President of East & South Asia, CSA Group. “Now, almost 100 years later, we are a global business that is dedicated to promoting safety, sustainability and social good worldwide. Through our sponsorship of this Canada Day event, we are celebrating our Canadian roots while helping to raise funds for this very important cause.”
According to statistics from the National Immigration Agency, as of 2015 new immigrants to Taiwan have now reached more than 500 thousand, with children representing more than 70 per cent of new immigrants. New immigrant populations often require settlement services, assistance with language barriers and cultural programs to help them adjust and thrive in their adopted country.
