Unleashing Canada-Hong Kong-Asia Business Potentials”

See our event page for more information.  

If you have any additional inquiries, please email us at toronto@hkcba.com 




As Asia continues to grow in more ways and in more places, Canadian companies may possibly benefit from finding, even redefining, the most appropriate strategic approaches for tapping extant and emerging opportunities in Asia, including the Chinese regional markets. In their ongoing quest for international success, Canadian businesses, especially SMEs, are finding that Hong Kong, Asia’s top international trade and financial centre, is able to strengthen and even fast-track their efforts.

Organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and supported by The Hong Kong-Canada Business Association (HKCBA) and other Canadian multipliers, the “Think Asia, Think Hong Kong” symposium is the largest Hong Kong/Asia-Canada promotion ever to take place in Canada. Its major objective is to encourage and facilitate Canadian companies to diversify their business to Asia in a strategic, effective and efficient way. In addition to a plenary session and a networking buffet luncheon, there will also be 4 concurrent breakout sessions on respectively “Selling to China and Asia”; “Chinese Outbound Investment to Canada”; “Technology Collaboration”; and “Reminbi (RMB) Internationalization”. There will also be over 100 Hong Kong and Mainland Chinese business delegates coming to Toronto for this event to meet and discuss co-operation with their Canadian counterparts. One-on-one business meetings with these visiting delegates will be pre-arranged for interested Canadian attendees.

Registration for the event is complimentary but necessary. First-come-first-served. Please register now to reserve your seats!

Canada's favoured trade hub


Hong Kong has rocketed to join the top 10 trade partners with Canada, mainly due to the SAR's dynamic and sophisticated marketplace, says Canada's recently-appointed Consul General in Hong Kong. Ian Burchett says his country's largest consulate abroad explains to Canadian companies how to use Hong Kong as a platform for Asia.

Canada's first MasterChef Eric Chong Visits Hong Kong


His name is Eric Chong and he’s destined to be a star in culinary circles. We could describe this talented young man in detail, but before we tell you about him, why not see him for yourself at   


Eric Chong hails from Oakville, Ontario, and he is the winner of CTV MasterChef Canada 2014. The above video gives a glimpse of Eric in Hong Kong, which he visited for a few months in order to be trained by Demon Chef Alvin Leung at Bo Innovation, his 3-star Michelin restaurant. In the video Eric can be seen exploring some of Hong Kong’s unique food markets and enjoying some of the region’s beautiful places. Eric was trained as a chemical engineer at McMaster University, but it seems he was destined to be a chef from a young age. Although now only in his early twenties, he has been cooking for 15 years! At six he enjoyed doing simple tasks in the kitchen, slowly becoming competent as he followed in the footsteps of his grandfather, who was head chef & owner of Hong Kong Bakery, a Chinese restaurant in Toronto. But in his parents’ eyes cooking wasn’t an acceptable career option. Eric’s motivation stemmed from a desire to prove his worthiness as a chef to his parents. Now with his MasterChef accolade Eric is hoping to prove he has a viable future as a successful chef. He wishes to open his own restaurant in his hometown of Oakville.  

Eric loves cooking foods with a ‘wow factor’. His signature dish is “Wok Lobster”- homemade chittara egg noodles with stir-fried lobster & coconut lobster sauce. Other dishes in his repertoire include mushroom risotto and fresh, homemade pasta.
