EDUCATION

Education in British Columbia has exceptional standards and opportunities for students. Students receive highly evaluated education, which opens the door to better jobs and potential careers. Students are free to discover and follow their passions feeding the growth as individuals, and steering them towards successful careers about which they are passionate. In the process, students gain awareness for what they want out of their studies, and learn where opportunities lie. Learning is a life-long journey. As our Province evolves so do its people — adapting to new and innovative methods, and incorporating new technologies along the way.

We are committed to investing in quality education, thus widening the scope of possibilities and opportunities for generations to come. The Y.P Heung Foundation believes in supporting selected essential programs for students attending institutions such as: British Columbia Institute of Technology, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Simon Fraser University, and the University of British Columbia.
