What does your club do?:
Queen's Hong Kong Students' Association (QHKSA) is a cultural club established under the Alma Mater Society at Queen's University. Founded in 1999, QHKSA's main objective is to create awareness of the Cantonese heritage at Queen’s and to foster better understanding betweenCantonese and other
cultures in the community. It is our responsibility that students here at Queen's, through educational activities and social functions have the opportunity to share their cultural similarities and to enhance friendships. Furthermore, we act as a liaison between the Kingston Chinese community and the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Toronto.
