About Us – Our History

It started in 1987.

A group of former students of Canossian Schools in Hong Kong had one goal in mind: to keep the Canossian spirit ablaze in British Columbia. By the Grace of God, their idea came into fruition and the Canossian Colleges Alumnae Association (CCAA) was incorproated on May 27, 1987.

Our membership now exceeds 350. Under the guidance of our Spiritual Director, Sr. Cecilia Cham, and the dedication of our Board of Directors, the CCAA serves as the bridge for former students, teachers, and friends of the Canossian schools in Hong Kong and Macau. At the many annual events, members are able to reconnect with old friends and establish new contacts. With the generous donations of our member, the CCAA is also active in our community, supporting different charitable organizations and meaningful causes.

We are ever thankful to the Almighty God for His kindness and generosity, as we continue to grow and serve as a family. We are grateful for the opportunity to stay connected with the Canossian Sisters, teachers, fellow students even though we are thousands of miles away from our Alma Mater.
