Under the leadership of Peter Kwok (Vice Chair of Public Affairs), Tung Chan, CEO, and Michael Lam, program director of the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Training Institute, the FCR forum took place on January 24, 2007.

The forum was well received and was attended by more than 150 people including 50 media representatives, guest speakers, service providers, and government representatives.


S.U.C.C.E.S.S. strives to support new Canadians by bridging the gap between the booming B.C. economy and persistent labour market integration barriers.  Beyond the forum, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. will pursue further dialogue with regulatory bodies and government officials.
