Waterloo Region Chinese Canadian Association

Since its establishment in 2002, the Waterloo Region Chinese Community Association (WCCA) has rapidly emerged as one of the largest and influential Chinese associations in this region with over 3000 members.

WCCA 2023 Spring Sound Music Gala


This year WCCA will celebrate the Spring Festival of the Year of the Rabbit in 2023 in a unique way. Through the theme of "WCCA Voice of Spring," various groups in our community, and all those who care about and support WCCA and love Chinese activities in the Waterloo area are invited.  All friends, let's create a musical that reviews the growth of the Chinese Federation in the past 20 years.
