The Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter (CCNCTO) was formed in 1985. They are a non-profit organization made up of Chinese Canadians in the Greater Toronto Area that promote equity, social justice, inclusive civic participation, and respect for diversity. The first Chinese Canadian National Council was formed in 1980 in Ontario; however, CCNC has developed a nationwide presence, with many different chapters.
