This spring, FH&P Lawyers is proud to support the OCCA’s Chinese Spring Lantern Festival. The festival will feature a Chinese New Year Dinner, performances, multiple booths, door prizes, and many more!

The mission of the OCCA (The Okanagan Chinese Canadian Association) is to bridge social, economic, cultural, and political gaps amongst all the ethnicities that have made the Okanagan their home by facilitating intercultural interactions that are based on sharing knowledge, rituals, and a mutual understanding of cultural complexities. This is a necessity in an increasingly multicultural Canadian future. The Association particularly helps Chinese Canadians integrate into Canadian society through services such as ESL (English as a second language) classes, income tax filing assistance, and seminars that explain the complexities of Canadian political, social, and cultural discourse, amongst many other things. The open and welcoming nature of the membership in the association has allowed for the mutual understanding of several different cultures within the Okanagan community. In doing so, the association has created a strong foundation of cultural expression that will allow future generations of Chinese immigrants to have a clear image of Chinese heritage and ancestry. This is a service not only to the Chinese Canadian community, but also the Okanagan community as a whole, as it promotes a highly diversified and understanding community of peoples and accommodates a growing Chinese Canadian population in Kelowna.

FH&P is proud to support the OCCA in their leadership as the cultural pillar of the community. The annual Spring Lantern Festival will take place on February 9, 2019, 6-9 pm at the Parkinson recreation centre apple hall.
