On this page you can find information and guidance regarding the current outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) that was first reported from Wuhan, China, in December, 2019.
In association with the WACD (World Association of Chinese Doctors) and other organizations, the CCMSBC (Chinese Canadian Medical Society BC), organized a fundraising event to support the fight against the novel coronavirus outbreak in China. The conference and fundraising event was held on February 8, 2020 at Lipont Place in Richmond, BC.
Representatives of the CCMSBC, WACD, other organizations, as well as BC community leaders participated in the event. The CCMSBC members included Drs. Charles Jiang (President), Xingyong Wang, Thomas Wang, Yanyan Chen. Some CCMSBC members also represented the WACD: Drs. Kwang Yang (WACD, Canadian Division Chair), Dr. Susan Kwan, Dr. Youwen Zhou, and Dr. Jianming Song. The event raised about 200,000 CAD (over 1 Million RMB) to support the battle against the novel coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China.
Dear CCMS(BC) members,
In the light of current novel coronavirus concern and WHO’s declaration today as it “the new coronavirus outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern”, our CCMS(BC) board committee decided to postpone our traditional annual Chinese New Year celebration dinner until further notice.
Although the risk to local BC residents is low from Vancouver Coast Health (VCH)’s daily update information, we advise our members to follow proper respiratory hygiene etiquette during the cold and flu season. We look forward to meeting you in our next event.
Dr. Charles Jiang

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.
