Details and information for the source of funds and sponsor benefits.

Canada One Family Network is a not for profit organization primarily for the promotion and education to Canadians of the Chinese traditions and culture from the ancient times.

Our project, the Age of Literati is an annual festival we have created. For 2017 the theme is “Memories of the Great Wall”. This project is partly sponsored by different levels of government, including Markham City’s Celebrate Markham project, the Federal Cultural Heritage Department of Arts and Culture Heritage Project, COFN and dozens of cultural performance groups and individuals have sponsored rehearsal venues, instructor fees and administrative fees.

Numerous groups of cultural organizations and businesses have often joined their resources with us for our events, festivals and public performances. Other sponsorships for miscellaneous costs have been successfully raised by the festival through social and promotional activities. It has become one of the top brands of Canadian Chinese traditional culture in the Greater Toronto Region and a high-end platform for businesses to successfully promote their commercial brands.

This series of cultural events is in line with the Chinese Central Government’s declaration during the 2017 Spring Festival to all local and international Chinese owned corporations to support cultural initiatives.
