Membership in the Chinese Association of Newfoundland and Labrador is open to all members of the public who have an interest in Chinese tradition and culture, or who are interested in the programs, services and events of the Association.

The Chinese Association of Newfoundland and Labrador is run entirely by volunteers who do not derive any remuneration from the Association. Membership fees support a substantial part of general administrative expenses of the Association, including office supplies, printing and copying, postage, and supplies for low admission events such as the Garden Party and Chinese New Year Sunday events. No membership fees are used to subsidize the Annual Dinner and Dance as that event is run on a self-sufficient basis.

We are planning to offer more programs and plan more events for our members. By being a member of the Association, your children qualify to apply for the annual Chinese Association Scholarship. You will also be given advance notice on limited capacity events, and preferential admission rates on some events. Your membership fees will also help to maintain the vitality of the Association, and make it possible for us to bring better programs and services to you. Please print out the form at the link below, complete and return with membership fee to the address indicated.



If you prefer not to become a member at this time, you can still keep up-to-date with our Association by having your name added to our e-mail bulletin list at no cost. A copy of our bulletins will be distributed (by e-mail only) to the address provided by you, on a slightly later date than those for paid-up members. Please submit your e-mail address (along with family members' names and children's ages if possible) to: Mail Bulletin List


In the past, many members have donated generously to the Association to defray general operating costs, or for special needs such as Cemetery Maintenance funds or Scholarship funds. These donations are greatly appreciated. Commencing with the next CANLNews bulletin, we will be publishing the names of these donors to express our thanks publicly. Those who do not wish to have their names published may request that the credit be given to "anonymous donor".

Please make cheques for membership and donations payable to:
