A Canadian Mid-Autumn

To the Canadian Global Community, Welcome to Beijing or welcome back! The weather is still sunny and warm so for those who love outdoor sports, there's softball and beach volleyball in Beijing, while our hockey tradition is still being played in both Beijing and Shanghai. Find these details and more below. The 60th anniversary of the PRC will take place this October 1, 2009. Expect to see a lot of pomp and march as well as a very long holiday especially as the Mid-Autumn Festival lands on October 3rd. This year's National Day military parade will be the 14th and is believed to be the largest ever in scale since the founding of new China in 1949. Past National Day military parades, include the very first one on China's founding, the 5th, 10th, 35th and 50th anniversaries, which were also the five major parades in the PRC's history.

Hope you’ve all enjoyed the May 1st holiday as the upcoming Dragon Boat Festival at the end of the month will be even longer!

But the Canadian network grew significantly as well as the technology, with this email network expanding into a full website that went through many changes over the years. We are proud to have been the first web-based network for the international community in China, and still going on strong after a decade, offering job opportunities, news and events for the Canadians in China.

A New Day Dawns As The Beijing 2008 Paralympics Close 

To the Canadian Global Community, The flame of the cauldron went out at last night’s Parlympic Closing Ceremonies in the Bird’s Nest symbolizing more than just the end, but a formal close to 7 years of sweat and tears for the Beijing 2008 Summer Games organizers, yet with a very unique step into a new era in the world of sports for China. The excitement drew millions of spectators worldwide, as the packed stadiums saw a newer understanding and appreciation for the Olympic and Paralympic games. Post-game withdrawal will begin to set in for many of those who were involved with the Beijing 2008 Summer Games, especially the hundreds of Canadians who volunteered for the Canadian Paralympic and Olympic Committees, and the BC-Canada Pavilion, which also closed last night after 5 months of welcoming visitors from around the world.
