我在2014年決定移民加拿大生活,在愛城生活的第一年就認識了曾添財會長及其夫人Megan。在他們的引介之下於2018、2019年擔任同鄉會秘書及財務一職,認識了許許多多來自台灣各地的朋友。

I decided to have a fresh start and immigrate to Canada in 2014. The first year I lived in Edmonton, I was introduced to ETA President, Steve Tseng and his wife, Megan. They gave me a valuable opportunity to join the ETA board as secretary and treasurer in 2018 and 2019. I made so many friends who came from different cities in Taiwan.

 

在此期間更是參與了許多活動夏季烤肉、中秋團圓、Heritage 運輸組長、北美台灣傳統週、及春節晚宴...與眾多義工一起打拼。大家有志一同將所有活動辦的盡善盡美,宣傳台灣文化及美食。我非常享受和大家聚在一起分享生活點滴,在異鄉聽到熟悉的口音及語言..真的是備感溫馨。你生活在愛城嗎?你熱切的想分享推廣台灣文化嗎?你...還沒參加過愛城台灣同鄉會嗎?歡迎加入我們的大家庭, 讓更多人知道台灣!

In that period of time, I volunteered my time to many events such as the Summer BBBQ, Moon Cake Festival , Heritage Festival, Taiwanese American Heritage Week, and Lantern Celebration Party. All board members and volunteers worked as a power team to promote Taiwanese  traditional culture and street foods. That was a great time to get together speaking our own language and sharing personal life experience. Do you live in Edmonton? Are you eager to promote our home country TAIWAN. Have you attended ETA’s events yet? Join the Edmonton Taiwanese Association and get more and more people to know Taiwan!

哇,我不敢相信埃德蒙頓台灣人協會持續活躍將近15年,此外,我個人在過去幾年中也曾在E.T.A主板擔任過非常光榮的機會。我只能說是加拿大人,在埃德蒙頓(Edmonton)擔當橋樑,與雙語文化,貿易促進及其他展覽活動聯繫在一起,總是熱情洋溢,尤其是加拿大和台灣在社會告別制度上有許多相似之處,科技合作等基礎產業。如果您同時審查國家領先的技術和其他方面的個人優勢,那將是一個非常互惠的情況。

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been almost 15 years of being a continuously active member of the Edmonton Taiwanese Association! Furthermore, I had an extremely honorable opportunity to serve on the Board of ETA in the past few years. I enjoy being a Taiwanese Canadian in Edmonton and acting as a bridge; connecting with bilingual cultures, promoting trading and exhibition, and always being passionate to share. Canada and Taiwan have many similarities in social welfare systems, and both produce hi-tech as well as industrial products. As a Taiwanese businessman here in Edmonton, I take pride that both countries lead in technology and individual advantage among others.

ETA是一個年輕的社區,在埃德蒙頓充滿活力的台灣人團體,所有成員都非常積極地參與社區服務,最重要的是,它是過去40年來在埃德蒙頓遺產節上最有價值的活動“台灣館”的主辦地。主要目的是為當地社區創建一個了解我們的文化和美食的平台,並使我們的傳承或傳統融入這個多元文化的家庭。

ETA is a young community and a very energized group of Taiwanese people in Edmonton. All members are very active in engaging with their community, providing services, and hosting numerous events in our city. For the past 40 years, ETA’s most important undertaking has been planning and hosting our most valuable event: the Taiwanese Pavilion at the Edmonton Heritage Days Festival. Our presence there creates a platform for the local community to learn about, understand, and experience our cultures and food. And, just as importantly, the Taiwanese Pavilion serves to keep our heritage or traditions alive for the Taiwanese people living here in Alberta helping to blend our history into a beautiful multi-cultural Taiwanese-Canadian family.

感謝所有成員和朋友的期待和支持,使我們的社區成為一個與眾不同的更好的地方。埃德蒙頓(Edmonton)台灣人可以自豪地說我是台灣人,居住在埃德蒙頓(Edmonton),始終秉承“分享就是關懷”的身份。

Thanks to all members and friends for their efforts and support in making our community a better place to feel at home while living here. Because of ETA, Taiwanese Edmontonians can be proud to say: I am Taiwanese living in Edmonton and I believe “sharing is caring”.

當義工是件很愉悅的事, 尤其是在同鄉會當義工. 兩次義工的經驗都是在夏天的文化節, 第一次是協助販售茶葉、布袋戲玩偶、以及介紹如何打彈珠, 第二次是協助舞台表演活動, 三太子是當天的大紅人, 不少人排隊拍照. 很鼓勵大家在閒暇之餘, 來同鄉會當義工, 不僅讓當地的人們認識台灣, 介紹台灣文化, 也可以結交同在異鄉的台灣朋友, 小小的付出對同鄉會可是大大的幫助, 大家一起來當義工唷!

Being a volunteer is great, especially when you are a volunteer for the Edmonton Taiwanese Association. My past experiences being a volunteer with ETA were at Heritage Days and the Summer Cultural Festival. The first time was to help sell tea leaves and puppets and to introduce people on how to play marbles. The second time was to assist in the stage performances. The third, prince (San-Tai-Zi) was a big HIT that day, and many people lined up to take pictures with him. 

 

I would like to encourage everyone to join the volunteer team with ETA! Not only to introduce Taiwan to local Edmontonians but also to share our Taiwanese culture with them. You can make a lot of Taiwanese friends in your area too! Your small contribution would be a great help to our organization. 

 

Please volunteer with the ETA today! Everyone is more than welcome to join us!

這是一個與親朋好友相聚並且貢獻社區的絕佳機會。從來都不知道,原來這個城市有這麼多不同國家的移民。從未有過機會,一天之內嚐遍大江南北的菜色。生平第一次,向這麼多人推薦我的原生文化和最愛吃的料理。明年我一定還要再參加一次。

 

It's a great opportunity gathering with the folks and contributing to the community. I never knew we had so many immigrants coming from different countries in this city, I never tasted so many different cuisines in one day, and I never had the chance to introduce my culture and favorite food to all these people. I'll definitely join this event again.
