2019 S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Walk with the Dragon

Welcome to the 2019 S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Walk with the Dragon

With over 30 years of history, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation's annual Walk with the Dragon has a reputation of being BC's largest family scenic walk and festival with over 4,000 individuals including participating in a panoramic walk along the seawall.

Every year, families and youth are inspired to participate and fundraise to support the cause. As a result of their generosity, proceeds of this event benefit urgently needed S.U.C.C.E.S.S. programs and services that are currently non-funded and partially funded by the government, particularly those pertaining to youth, women, families and seniors.

Dr. Chow's Message

Dr. Matthew Chow, Doctor of BC's President-Elect, has sent the following message to our members.

Greetings to all my medical colleagues and members of CCMSBC.

Chinese-Canadians have a proud but sometimes clouded history in Canada. Those clouds include discriminatory laws against Chinese immigration, the disenfranchisement of Chinese-Canadians until 1948 (women were allowed to vote before Chinese-Canadians), and aspersions cast upon Chinese-Canadian medical students in Canadian medical schools.

Those clouds are now long past us.

For the first time in the 119 year history of the Doctors of BC, a Chinese-Canadian has been elected to the position of President-Elect.

Please Vote in BCMA Election!

Dear Members,
 
Here is just a friendly reminder to cast your vote to elect the next president of Doctors of BC. The deadline is fast approaching.
The candidates are Drs. Charuka Maheswaran and Dr. Matthew Chow.
A list of the past-presidents of Doctors of BC is attached for your reference.
Let’s give our voices!
 

Regarding the Diversity & Inclusion Survey, please respond

Dear Members,

The CCMS Board has been approached by Doctors of BC to support their Diversity & Inclusion Survey/Initiative. Our Board has agreed that this is a valuable initiative and would like to urge our members to participate in this process.

As we all know, the origin of our Society can be traced back to more than 30 years ago, when physicians with Chinese ethnic background across Canada got together to protest against discriminatory policies in medical education. Our Society, and the Canadian Chinese community as a whole, have come a long way since then.

We applaud the Diversity & Inclusion Initiative from Doctors of BC, and we believe inputs from our members are essential in this process.
