Note (1): With Canada being the host of Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation, APEC, Canada's year of Asia Pacific, CYAP, was created to increase Canadian's awareness of Canada's relationship with Asia Pacific. The mandate of the cultural component of CYAP was to create a national cultural program that would enhance Canada's relationship with Asia Pacific economies by presenting the best traditional and contemporary arts of the region, while also promoting awareness and understanding of the culture of over two million Canadians of Asia Pacific origin. Funds were used for publicity, travel grants for performers from the Asia Pacific region to Canada, and other outreach programs.
