The United Vietnamese Students’ Association of Eastern Canada (UVSA Eastern Canada) is a non-profit organization, founded in 1997, dedicated to celebrating Vietnamese culture and to serve, empower, and unify the Vietnamese-Canadian community and Vietnamese Students’ Associations (VSAs) within Eastern Canada. As an organization, UVSA Eastern Canada’s regional mission emphasizes celebrating Vietnamese culture, encouraging philanthropy, cultivating leadership, and promoting unity among VSAs. UVSA Eastern Canada strives to create opportunities for youth and students to connect and build networks within our community, encourage collaboration and leadership, as well as give back to our community through our philanthropy work.
In addition to our own region, we are also one of fourteen regions associated with the Union of North American Vietnamese Student’ Associations (UNAVSA). UNAVSA is a non-profit, community-based organization dedicated to shaping the next generation of leaders from every associated VSA throughout Canada and the United States.
