Hosted by the Education Foundation of CPAC and sponsored by HSBC Bank Canada, CPAC Education Day is the largest education related event in GTA’s Chinese Community. The main purpose of this annual event is to provide newcomer families with information on the Canadian education system and related services, helping students and parents succeed in their new life in Canada. Since its inception 6 years ago, this event has provided over 10,000 student and parents with practical information about education in this country.
The 7th CPAC Education Day will be held on October 25th, 2014 at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel (600 Highway 7 East, Richmond Hill ON L4B 1B2). About forty schools and education related service providers are expected to attend this year’s event to let you have a face-to-face communication chance to the school representatives. A keynote presentation shared by a Harvard student plus eight breakout session workshops and a full day drop-in student forum hosted by post-secondary student’s associations are all tailored to the needs of parents and students. Catering to the increasing interest in adult education, this year’s Education Day will also provide related information and workshop to mature students seeking a second career or look to upgrading their skills to reach their goals.

Panel Discussion on Undergraduate Business Programs
Kymberlee Wong, University of Toronto
Crystal Chen, York University
Alson Ng, HBA 2013, Ivey Business School, Western University
Dorcas Wong, Ivey Business School, Western University
While there is a lot of discussion about the top B-schools and their MBA program, there is typically less discussion about undergraduate programs. With a keen attention to student needs, this panel discussion will focus on the difference of each business program offered in different universities through the eyes of current students and recent graduates from University of Toronto, York University and Western University.
A description of each available business program will be explained by the panelists, will also address the unique questions that students may have. This will be a great opportunity for prospective students to gain more information from those four reliable and experienced panelists before you do your selection.
