The Association of Chinese Canadian Entrepreneurs (ACCE), formerly known as “Chinese Canadian Entrepreneur Club”, is a not-for–profit organization incorporated in 1994. In 1995, the Association signed a letter of co-operation with the Centre of Entrepreneurship of Centennial College to foster entrepreneurship training.
Since 1992, ACCE has been organizing various seminars for business people and entrepreneurs. In 1997, in association with Centennial College, the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, PricewaterhouseCoopers (formerly known as Coopers & Lybrand) and Ming Pao Daily News, we held our first Chinese Canadian Entrepreneur Awards.
Our mission is to encourage entrepreneurship and to strengthen the competitiveness of Chinese Canadian business in the global market. It is also our objective to assist Chinese Canadians in developing new businesses by sharing their expertise through quality training and mutual support. Our processes include providing a network for members to share resources, organizing seminars, workshops, conferences and other special programs on relevant business topics, and facilitating communication between government and new businesses. A new initiative is to assist entrepreneurs in exploring and developing the trade potential (in the Asian Pacific Region) for Canadian goods and services.
As a not-for-profit organization, volunteerism and assistance from all our members is critical to our success. We also depend on assistance from our friends in the business community.
We welcome you to join us in the pursuance of your future endeavors and dreams.
