An invitation of Chinese Canadian writers to China in 2013 has created a response of interests in Canada and in China to share and access Chinese Canadian authors. The intention of this page is to provide a resource of Asian Canadian authors and selected titles for educators, institutions, and academic departments in Canada, China, and for all those interested.

You are welcome to create a profile page of an Asian Canadian author and contribute to this resource list of Asian and Chinese Canadian authors and titles.

Publications will appear on the respective author wiki page, if available.

Please note that the source material for this profile page was collected directly from the authors as a consequence of an interest to expand the choice of Chinese Canadian books in the library of Beijing University.
