The plan to build a Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Toronto was first started in 1988. CCC has been a multicultural hub for diverse ethnicity in Greater Toronto Area since it came into operation in 1998. Besides operating programs and classes to serve the diverse needs of the community, and events to enrich the cultural and artistic mosaic, in 2017 alone, the CCC’s broad-based programs and events impacted and benefited over 150,000 people from youth to senior and from local to international. 2018 marks the 30th anniversary of CCC, and our Toronto Piano & Violin Competition 2019 will take place from February 21 to February 28, 2019, bringing into focus our ongoing work to provide a platform to discover and recognize talent, to highlight musical growth and experience, to provide inspiration for people of all nationalities and cultures, and to bring Toronto and Canada onto the World Stage.
