Pictures From the Chinese Diabetes Health Fair
Diabetes is a growing epidemic in Canada - that means every 3 minutes someone is being diagnosed with diabetes in our country. The Chinese population is especially vulnerable. Due to the large role ethnicity and genetics play in the onset of this disease, Chinese people are at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. As of today, 11 million Canadians, or one-third of the population of Canada has diabetes or prediabetes. This number is still growing exponentially, and this trajectory need to be stopped. That is why we are having the Chinese Diabetes Health Fair at the Glencairn Community Centre on Sunday August 20, 2017 from 3pm-5pm – and participation is free!
Diabetes Canada, partnering with the Regina Chinese Canadian Association (RCCA), would like to invite you to a Diabetes Health Fair developed especially for the Chinese community of Regina. On Sunday August 20th, we will be hosting a wonderful afternoon with a diabetes presentation from Rubicon Pharmacist Leah Lucyk, a cooking demonstration with SaskCanola including taste-testing and live instruction, a fitness workshop on how to easily include some resistance exercise into your life, and a trade show area. Trade show booths include diabetes risk assessments, SaskCanola, Rubicon Health Solutions and more. People will be able to meet with Pharmacists and ask questions about their health in personal counseling sessions. We will also have a children’s program running simultaneously throughout the Health Fair with leaders who are ready to have some fun with your kids!
Registration and refreshment break begin at 3:00 pm with the program to follow, so please bring your kids along to enjoy a free, fun, educational, and delicious afternoon with us!

REGINA MOSAIC 2017
On June 1, 2, &3, 2017, there were 20 pavilions celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Regina Multicultural Council's Mosaic, A festival of Cultures.
Through the RCCA, the Regina Chinese community was also celebrating our 31st annual participation in this popular cultural festival, Mosaic 2017.
The Chinese Pavilion was a great success! There were about 10,000 visits over the three days. Visitors enjoyed the fantastic performances and cultural displays. The entertainment program included Chinese folk dances, folk songs, Peking Opera, Chinese musical instruments, Tai Chi demonstration, Lion Dance and martial arts etc. Food was a key attraction in the Pavilion. The menu included General-Tao Chicken Combo, Ginger Beef Combo, Stir Fried Vegetarian Combo, Sweet & Sour Pork Combo, Spring Rolls, Sesame Ball, Tsingdao beer, Shanghai Sling, etc.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to all volunteers. Without your time, efforts and energy, the Chinese Pavilion would have not been possible.
We would also like to express our most sincere appreciation to the following business and cultural groups for their assistance, cooperation, and support: I love Sushi Restaurant, EDO, Ming Ji BBQ, Chinese Dance School of Saskatchewan, RCCA Red Leaves Performing Arts Group, RCCA Tai Chi Group, RCCA Wellness Group, Chung Wah Kung Fu Centre, OWL at the University of Regina, and the Confucius Institute at the University of Regina!
Thank you again for your participation, help, support, and contribution!
