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

Kiu Chan Times 30: Moments Captured by a Photojournalist

Kiu Chan Times 30

Mr. Chan is a retired photojournalist from Hong Kong. He started as a darkroom assistant/junior photographer with the Hong Kong Tiger Standard (now known as The Standard), and worked his way up to the chief photographer position at South China Morning Post. During a career that spanned more than three decades, he won over 30 international press picture awards, earning him the status of a master in photojournalism.

The photographs in the book and the exhibition reveal heart throbbing natural disasters, depressing sights of the refugee influx, and intimate stories of life in Hong Kong. These moments captured by Mr. Chan invariably bring you back to the time period of the 60’s through the 90’s.

The cost is $25 per book. All proceeds from the book sales will go directly to supporting the social services of S.U.C.C.E.S.S.
