About Us

In Feb 2004, the Office of Chinese Language Council International (better known as “Hanban”) affiliated with the Chinese Ministry of Education sent its first special advisor on Chinese language and culture to Alberta Education (former Alberta Learning). The position was created according to an educational memorandum of understanding signed by former Alberta Premier Ralph Klein and Chinese Deputy Minister of Education Wu Qidi.

It is our belief that a website dedicated to Chinese language education would go a long way in promoting Chinese language and culture education in Alberta. It took some time, but with the generous support of Alberta Education, we are finally ready to launch the website, “Chinese Alberta”.

We hope “Chinese Alberta” will become:

  • a bridge between China and Canada;
  • a showcase of progress and achievements; 
  • a platform for exchange of information and experience;
  • a resource centre for Chinese language education.

“Chinese Alberta” needs support and feedback from teachers, students, parents, and other stakeholders. Please visit our website regularly for updated information. Your contributions, comments and suggestions are most welcome.
