The easiest way to make Taiwanese friends in a safe, free & friendly environment

TORONTO TAIWANESE COMMUNITY

The 3rd largest Taiwanese meetup group in the world

(We just beat groups in New York & Orange County (in California;)

YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A TAIWANESE TO JOIN THIS GROUP--EVERYONE IS WELCOME! You do not need to speak Mandarin to join.

This group would be ideal for

(a) Locals of Taiwanese descent.

(b) Newcomers or Visitors from Taiwan.

(c) People who like to know more Mandarin speakers (either English speakers or native Mandarin speakers themselves).

(d) Anyone interested in Taiwanese or Chinese culture, or simply like to make some friends here.

(e) People who stayed in Taiwan before or consider to travel/teach English there in the future.

(f) Anyone interested in attending events or gatherings of this group.

Taiwan is among the top-20 largest economies in the world [17][18], and a multi-party democracy with universal suffrage. The high-tech industry of Taiwan has been playing a key role in the global economy and technological advances for decades. She is also ranked highly in terms of freedom of the press, health care [19], public education, economic freedom, and human development [e][12][20], to name a few. (Adapted from Wikipedia--under construction.)

Taiwan is Asia's best kept secret for travel, higher education, medical service, and English teaching. It is also a source of talents and quality products with good price-performance ratios. However, Taiwanese and descendants are a relatively small community as compared to other Asian groups in Toronto. Meeting other fellow Taiwanese is not so common, and the channels are limited. Through this group, we are facilitating a new platform for Taiwanese to meet each other in Toronto, as well as for Torontonians who like to know Taiwanese friends or cultures to blend in. As a bonus, we'll foster the Taiwanese community in Toronto and Canada, collaborate with other Taiwanese organizations/associations, and promote the awareness and presence of Taiwan in Toronto and worldwide.

Lots of students from Taiwan are conducting their graduate study overseas, especially in North America and the Great Britain. Recently due to the convenience of Taiwanese passport and working holidays as well as some government or academic policies, more and more young Taiwanese are having their adventures overseas on a short-term basis. We welcome these young Taiwanese most enthusiastically, and hopefully our group can assist these new friends from hometown to adapt to Canadian life and enjoy their stay better.
