The Brief Story of TCAT
Taiwanese Canadian Association of Toronto (TCAT), the largest Taiwanese organization in the Toronto area, was established in the 1960’s by a few fellow Taiwanese Canadian university students when they had a gathering at Niagara Fall. Later in 1963 the association was informally formed, it was not officially registered later in Ontario as non-for-profit Corporation in October 22nd, 1975.
The main objectives of TCAT are to promote the common interests and welfare of the members, to provide cultural and recreational activities for the Taiwanese community, and to better the inter-group relations within the context of Canadian multiculturalism.
The activities and services offered by TCAT usually include community educational workshops, summer BBQ, Taiwan Fest at Harbour Front Centre, sports meetup, concerts, picnics, like the Formosan Cup Softball Tournament and parties on special occasions such as Lunar New year, Mother’s Day Celebration, Mid-Autumn Festival etc.
The Taiwanese Canadian Association of Toronto and its leaderships has been working hard and stepping in to key position as community stakeholders that bridge the communities together. Other Canadian ethnic cultural members can relied on the contribution of what Taiwanese Canadian is able to bring to the table and better the land now we call our home.
