community complex located at the south east corner of Sheppard Avenue
East and Progress Avenue in Scarborough.
CCC consists of two
phases: Phase I is the CCC building with an art gallery, computerised
resource centre, reading room, boardroom, studios, and classrooms. The
second phase includes a 600-seat state-of-the-art theatre and a
8500-square-foot multi-purpose hall for sports and recreational

both the Chinese Culture and traditions, and other cultures and

facilitate exciting trading opportunities and strengthen the ties
between the Canadian and the Far East markets.
