Transforming Canada-China Educational Cooperation: Significant Legacies and Future Challenges



Date: May 9-10, 2014

Location: Tsinghua University, Beijing

Sponsoring Organizations: Tsinghua University, the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto,  York University.

This conference brought together leaders and scholars involved in cooperative linkages between Chinese and Canadian universities across the fields of agriculture, education, engineering, environment, marine sciences, medicine, management, law and minority cultures between 1982 and the early 21st century. Keynote speakers analysed the long-term contribution of these projects, which were supported by the Canadian International Development Agency and spanned a dynamic and important period in the socio-economic development of China as well as Canada. Concurrent papers illustrated ways in which the legacy of these projects are stimulating current cooperation between universities in Canada and China. Canadian Universities in China's Transformation: An Untold Story was published by McGill Queens University Press in June of 2016. It contains 12 chapters developed from keynote papers, as well as an Introduction and Conclusion, while papers that did not become book chapters are available on this website. Powerpoints mounted under the names of keynote and concurrent speakers provide detailed and vivid documentation of the history of collaboration in each field. A special issue of Frontiers of Education in China containing six papers from concurrent sessions on Canada-China educational cooperation came out in September of 2015 and a second one on Minority Studies in China came out in December of 2016. Additional background literature is also available on the link to the project website below.
