Most Malaysians in Canada are recent immigrants and many are international students. Approximately 70% of Canadian Malaysians live in Ontario, and more than 50% live in Toronto. Immigrants from Malaysia who settle in Canada tend to be highly educated; an estimated 49% have post-secondary education (including university degrees). More than 25,000 Malaysian international students come to Canada every year.
We offer a place for fellow Malaysians and friends in the Greater Toronto Area to meet and “cakap, cakap” (chat) about old times and get together to “makan” (eat) all the delicious Malaysian food that we miss so much! Our association organizes events such as Summer Picnic, Festival functions and informal gatherings so that our members can meet regularly. We also organize sporting events like the Annual Golf Tournament and weekly Badminton weekly sessions to keep our members active physically!
