In 1989, Center for Canadian Studies of Guangzhou Institute of Foreign Languages (the predecessor of Guangdong University of Foreign Studies (GDUFS)) was founded as the first institute specializing in Canadian teaching and research in Guangdong and also the pioneer in our country. Early in 1993, the center published a magazine Prospective in Canada. With the merger of Guangzhou Institute of Foreign Languages and Guangzhou Institute of Foreign Trade in 1995, the center was renamed as Center for Canadian Studies of GDUFS. Over the past two decades, through the unremitting efforts of the former directors such as Prof. Zhu Jiancheng, Prof. He Yuangui, and many others, the center has enjoyed an increasingly prestigious social influence. On December 2011, the center was approved by the Ministry of Education as the first group of Cultivation Base for Regional and National Studies. On June 18th 2012, Center for Canadian Studies, the Cultivation Base for Regional and National Studies of the Ministry of Education, was formally established, with Prof. Zhong Weihe, the president of GDUFS, serving as the director of the center and Prof. Tang Xiaosong, a renowned expert in international studies, as the executive deputy director.
