These events are strongly supported by the Markham Civic Centreand we are honored to have the Mayor, Frank Scarpitti, to chair the event. 

These events are also strongly supported by some associations and related government authority organizations from Fujian, China. 

Fujian is located in China's southeast coast and is surrounded by mountains, seas, and pleasant subtropical weather. It also has rich cultural heritage with many historic and tourist attractions. The tea culture has always been an important aspect of Chinese culture and a driver of foreign exchange in the region. Fujian province in China produces among the highest quality tea around the world and has built this reputation through several centuries. 

On the days of the Mid-Autumn Festival Gala and Fujian Culture Exhibition there will be a series of Fujian Tourism video play, book fairs, historical photographic and Chinese calligraphy displays, tea brewing performances, tea tastings, traditional fashion shows, and cultural dances. 

We hope that through this exhibition and gala, the community can learn and experience the happiness to celebrate Mid-Autumn festival, rich Fujian culture and flavors of quality Fujian tea.

Introduction

This exhibition is initiated by the New Immigrants Foundation for Special Needs (NIFSNand OPS East Asian Network Group (EANG). EANG will host Annual East Asia Heritage Festival (Heritage celebration) from May 24th 2016 to May 27th 2016, in the core OPS building. The Tea culture of Fujian and Yunnan as part of East Asia culture will be promoted in this festival.

The tea Exhibition is organized to be part of the Festival in the same facility, to be promoted to almost 100,000 of the OPS employees, and other company employees around the area, who not only come from local communities, East Asia Communities but also from other communities (North America, Europe, South America, and other part of the world).

The purpose is to display developing history of the Tea cultures, let more Canadian understand and accept Tea culture in order to promote the development of Tea culture exchange. The exhibition obtains supporting from local communities and Ontario government diversity groups, and got positive response from the some business commonalities in China.

This exhibition will cooperate with Canada Fujian Chamber of Commerce and Yunnan General Business Association of Canada, which highly increases the social and culture influence for both countries between Canada and China. Since the government has a policy that supports entrepreneurs to engage into this exhibition, this exhibition will bring decent social and economic benefits.

Your participation will promote the tea culture overseas, the bilateral trade and investment cooperation in the tea industry.

 

New Opportunities between China and Canada

With thousands years’ history and superior quality, Chinese Tea is popular and famous in China and Chinese communities around of the world. Canada promotes multicultural environment and holds various cultural tea exhibitions every year. However, only a small portion of Chinese Teas has being exported.

Fortunately, the exhibition will be as a platform to present and advertise them to international markets. Through ideas exchange and business connections, top Chinese Tea and associated tea culture will be introduced to Canada by creating publicity and expanding Chinese Tea exportation which benefit both China and Canada for a long term.

Notice

2016 is a significant year for celebrating a great relationship between Canada and China. In order to create a better culture and trade exchange environment, we would like to hold the international tea culture exhibition every year.

As an international city, Toronto provides a perfect platform to present tea arts and has experiences of holding various cultures and trade exchange events. We believe that Toronto International Tea Culture Exhibition will increase Chinese tea reputation, facilitating tea trading, and bringing economic and political benefits for both countries.
