Sien Lok Society of Calgary’s vision is to create an environment where lives are touched, enriched and refreshed though broad ties to our culturally diverse communities. To accomplish this vision, we develop and participate in cultural preservation and promotional activities for those affected by, or interested in, Canadian Chinese culture.
Sien Lok Society continues to embark on new projects to honour the presence of Chinese culture in Calgary’s social fabric through benevolent activities. Our annual Chinese New Year Celebration Gala is an event that showcases Chinese traditions and culture to advance and promote Chinese Canadian heritage as well as raise funds for other projects.
We look forward to seeing you at the Gala to help bring in the year of the Sheep.
