The Kitchener-Waterloo Taiwanese Canadian Association (KWTCA) was established in 1964 for Taiwanese-Canadian residents to enjoy activities together and share information about local lifestyles.

Avon Chang and Kelly Hung speak with Bob Jonkman about the introduction of Taiwanese culture to Canada, some of the culture shock for people moving here from Taiwan, and wearing facemasks during the Covid-19 pandemic.
