CSR

As a non-profit organization, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce Vietnam (CanCham) is dedicated to contributing to and improving society in Vietnam, and is proud to maintain a strong Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) mandate and profile. Terry Fox Run Vietnam, organized by CanCham, is the largest by-participation CSR event in Vietnam and, in 2016, was the largest International Terry Fox Run in the world. More than 20,000 participants attended the event, with funds raised staying in Vietnam benefit CanCham’s cancer initiatives, including a newly launched research fellowship programme in collaboration with the University of British Columbia (Canada) which will enable the University Medical Hospital to establish the first pediatric oncology department in Vietnam. In other CSR, CanCham annually hosts our popular CSR Golf Open and holds a charity art auction, featuring artwork from local students, at our Canadian Thanksgiving Dinner. CanCham plans to continue expanding our CSR engagement in the coming year to include more events that benefit more charitable organizations.
