The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan cordially invites you to attend our
3rd Annual Maple Ball For Charity
Saturday, November 4, 2017
The Grand Hyatt Taipei, 3F Ballroom
The annual Maple Ball for charity is the largest formal event of the year hosted by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan. Our event is run in partnership with MacKay Memorial Hospital and the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei to raise money for the hospital’s Children’s Ward.
It is a celebration of the strong links between Canada and Taiwan dating back more than 100 years when Dr. George Leslie MacKay first began his missionary work in Taiwan.
In 2015, more than 220 people joined the event which included wonderful food, live music, an opera performance and lots of new friends and memories. Almost $10,000CDN was raised at the event for charity.
In 2016, we raised under $16,500 CDN for the Children’s Ward, thanks to a wonderful 3oth anniversary celebration with the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei.
What can we achieve in 2017?
We have no limits, only love to show for our community here in Taiwan and for MacKay Memorial Hospital, which is one of the most well-known and respected private hospitals in Taiwan.
Its long standing service to the people of Taiwan have made it a great beneficiary.
Come out for a good cause! Your ticket purchase and attendance at this event will affect the lives of children in Taiwan. Proceeds from every ticket go directly towards the MacKay Memorial Hospital Children’s Ward.

2017 Maple Ball Sponsors
The Canadian Trade Office in Taipei was first established in 1986 with a mandate to facilitate trade ties between Canada and Taiwan. Since then, relations between Canada and Taiwan have strengthened and diversified considerably making Taiwan one of Canada’s most significant partners in Asia-Pacific.
MacKay Memorial Hospital (馬偕紀念醫院) is one of the largest medical centers in Taiwan.
It was established on December 26, 1912. The hospital is a private Christian hospital, mostly associated with George Leslie Mackay, the first modern missionary to northern Taiwan.
Dr. MacKay came from Oxford Country, Ontario, Canada. The hospital is deeply rooted in the Presbyterian tradition and under the spiritual guidance of the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan.
