The Canada One Family Network (COFN) is a registered not for profit organization incorporated in the province of Ontario. We have recently amalgamated the services of several organizations with highly talented and qualified people who have developed within the Chinese Cultural Heritage offering many years of talented services and performances.
We have come together for the love of the ancient Chinese Cultural Heritage which spans many hundreds and in fact thousands of years. Here we have gathered our knowledge, skills and love for each of our individual art and performance forms to educate through entertainment and teaching to everyone. We are reaching out to all Canadians in many areas.

There are surprising benefits to being a volunteer. But let’s first allow us to clear out some common and often misplaced doubts:
1) “You appear to work for free and without any return of value.”
It’s true not for profit and charitable organizations rely heavily on the volunteer workforce. Most such organizations have little or minimal financial resources. Even the directors or people who start and operate them are often unpaid for many years. It is the desire to benefit the community at large that often drives many such success stories.
2) “Is There a Return of Value?”
COFN recognizes all of our volunteers with certificates and letters. We train all our volunteers in community leadership and the etiquette of greeting the public in person and on the phone. This is a skill in great demand. Next, volunteers have the opportunity to learn the skills they would require exactly as learning an income earning job. Many volunteers go on to earn gainful employment.
