The Publications Division is responsible for the publication of books, pamphlets, and the Evergreen News, a Chinese monthly newspaper founded by S.U.C.C.E.S.S and a group of volunteers in 1985. The purpose was to help Chinese immigrants settle down in Canada. It has become a community project with volunteers involved in writing, editing, proofreading, marketing, distribution and fundraising. The contents range from new immigrants’ orientation materials to social issues, Canadian living and culture, and healthy living and literary writings. Many of the articles are written by volunteers from all walks of life.
Evergreen News plays a vital role in bridging the cultural gap and in enriching the Chinese immigrants’ understanding of Canadian society. It is a popular family publication with a circulation of 8,000 copies for free local and overseas distribution. It can also be read online at https://www.successbc.ca/chn/our-services/publications/reading-online/.
To help raise funds to defray the operating costs of Evergreen News, a volunteer group, the Evergreen News Club was formed in 1992. It now has over 3,000 members. Educational and recreational activities, including dance, computer and Cantonese classes, short and long haul tours are regularly organized. The Publications Division provides the necessary support.
Books are published on an ongoing basis. Titles include “Lilian To: A Life of Devotion,” ” Ordinary Faces of HK & Macau Through the Lens of William Chee-keung Wong,” “Kiu Chan Times 30: Moments Captured by a Photojournalist,” “Travelling the World from Vancouver,” “Career Success in Canada,” and “Ode to the Lotus: Selected Poems of Florence Chia-ying Yeh,” “Comprehensive Dementia Care,”“A Treasure Trove,” etc.
