Network for Mandarin-Speaking Canadian Young Professionals

MGen 1.5 stands for “Mandarin Generation 1.5”. The term “Generation 1.5” was coined to refer to people who immigrated to a new country before or during their adolescence. We are the “1.5th generation” because we bring with us characteristics of our home country and characteristics from continuous assimilation and socialization in the new country. Our identity is thus a combination of multiple cultures and traditions.

We are an association of young Mandarin-speaking Canadian professionals working or pursuing professional degrees in the GTA(Greater Toronto Area) and Calgary. We are a group of fluently bilingual and bicultural,international-minded professionals with diverse skills and expertise to offer. MGen 1.5 will serve to advocate and promote our members to the Canadian and international community. We build and enable networking within our membership through various social, volunteering and professional development events.

MGen 1.5 exists to provide a network and platform for 1.5 Generation Mandarin Canadians. We aim to become the hub of MGen1.5 professional talents.

中国日报将“第1.5代”解释为

1.5代是指年幼时移民到另一个国家的人们,他们身上带有来自祖国的一些特点,而又要在一个新的国家被同化和社会化。因此,他们的身份特征是中西两种文化和传统的一个混合体。

我们是在加拿大华裔移民中的一个特殊群体,被称为“1.5代”。由于我们出生在海外,少年时期随父母赴加。在家里受到中国的传统文化熏陶而在学校和社会上接受西方教育和影响,使我们兼具中西文化之特色,我们是真正的双语、双文化人才。

加华1.5代 (MGen 1.5) 是多伦多和卡尔加里1.5代华裔专业人士所创的非盈利组织。通过专业发展,社交活动,和社区服务,我们希望为中加专业人士提供一个相互认识和学习的平台。1.5代的成员在中西文化交汇的环境中成长,有包袱也有优势。在国际经济日益发展的今天,双语双文化背景有助我们的成员成为中西交流的桥梁。
