About MAC

Welcome! We offer a place for fellow Malaysians and friends in the Greater Toronto Area to meet and "cakap, cakap" (chat) about old times and get together to "makan" (eat) all the delicious Malaysian food that we miss so much! Our association organizes events such as Summer Picnic, Festival functions and informal gatherings so that our members can meet regularly. We also organize sporting events like the Annual Golf Tournament and weekly Badminton weekly sessions to keep our members active physically!


Please feel free to browse around our website. For Newcomers to Ontario, we have collected many useful information and links to help you settle here. For the general public, we have information about Malaysia in general and link to the Tourism Malaysia website. For all our members, we regularly update our website to inform of our upcoming events and we have collected photographs from our past events in the Gallery for your viewing.

Our Annual Picnic is here again!

The MAC Annual Picnic will be held on Sunday, August 17 2014 at Simeon Park (a private park) in Gormley, Stouffville, ON. Here's a link of the Google map of the picnic site: http://goo.gl/maps/S9GU

It's a good time to meet friends and renew acquaintances again! For new members, you'll get the to meet many fellow Malaysians here.

This is a POTLUCK picnic, so please bring your food to share with our members and friends there.

You can bring cooked food e.g. Fried Noodles, Nasi Goreng, Nasi Lemak, Char Koay Teow, Roti Channai, Curry Dishes, Mee Siam and many other Malaysian dishes. You can also bring Desserts, Kueh2 and Fruits.

Based on previous years' experience, we received many noodle dishes and not enough meat and curry dishes, and other savoury food. So please bring something more substantial and also more quantity, so that nobody goes away hungry!

MAC will complement with at least a thousand sticks of Satay, trays of Noodles (supplied by Gourmet Malaysia) and Watermelons to be shared by all. We will also supply bottled water for everyone.

There will be organized games for all young at hearts and prizes to be won. Bring your family and enjoy the day and have fun!

We will set up two large tents, so that we can eat and relax in comfort in the shade!

IMPORTANT: We need Volunteers to help us at the picnic site, especially at the Food section to organize the food, serving and crowd control. We also need volunteers to help us in organizing games and overall management. Please let me know if you can help out by email to membershipinfo@malaysian.ca .
