YCAR will launch the Canada China Initiative Fund on Friday 13, September 2019 at York University.
The Canada China Initiative Fund at the York Centre for Asian Research (CCIF at YCAR) supports scholarly exchanges and research of York faculty and graduate students. It was created through the generous support of York’s Asian Business and Management Program.
Its key aims are to: build a strong community of York scholars who raise the global profile of research and engagement at York on the Greater China Region and its global reach, on Canada-Greater China Region linkages or the Chinese-Canadian community as well as to foster connections between York and institutions in the Greater China Region or in Chinese-Canadian communities.

Noon – When A Hundred Schools of Thought Contend and Collaborate
