Ontario Hong Kong Youth Action
OHKYA is a youth-led group aiming to advocate for Hong Kong and to support the Hong Kong diaspora community.
Ontario Hong Kong Youth Action (OHKYA) was formed by a group of youths who come from diverse backgrounds, with some pursuing their post-secondary education, and others entering the workforce, all residing in Ontario who are concerned about Hong Kong and other places being threatened by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It was previously Ontario Universities Hong Kong Awareness Group (ONUHKAG), which aimed to advocate for academic freedom and human rights, particularly related to Hong Kong and other regions under CCP control. Our goal is to inform and connect communities surrounding concerns about social issues in Hong Kong and Canada, build a province-wide Hong Kong youth community, and raise political awareness through various campaigns.
OHKYA operates on Turtle Island, known as Canada nowadays, where Indigenous people continue to exist, thrive, and resist colonial, environmental, and racial violence. This group upholds social justice values and stands in solidarity with all marginalized people. Individuals and communities that advocate for social justice must support each other to fight against all forms of oppression. Oppression is a global issue; we strive to use our transnational perspectives to educate and connect people.
本組織的三大方向為：(一) 聯繫加港青年並推動香港加拿人海外社區發展；(二) 為香港新移民提供社區支援；以及 (三) 與其他加拿大社群保持團結而推進社會公義。
