About Us

Ao Dai Canada

Ao Dai Canada (ADC) was created in May 2016 and was officially registered a non-profit organization #270801219 on July 27, 2017.

We are a Toronto-based non-profit organization that focuses on preserving the Vietnamese culture, while raising awareness against human trafficking and child exploitation. Maintaining a non-political and non-profit agenda, we aim to provide cultural and charitable opportunities for youth involvement. Ao Dai Canada’s intent is to share the Vietnamese culture and traditions with the public, in an inclusive manner.

We welcome new participants, models, designers, and volunteers… Anyone who loves arts and culture, feel free to reach out to us. We would love to hear from you! Please visit your Facebook page at: Ao Dai Canada

The Áo Dài

The Áo Dài is a Vietnamese traditional clothing, most commonly worn by women but can also be worn by men. In its current form, it is a tight-fitting silk tunic worn over trousers. Áo means shirt, and Dài means long.

The Ao Dai symbolizes Vietnamese women and their traditional virtues of grace, beauty, gentleness, demureness and unquestionable devotion. Áo Dài Canada aims to modify these perceptions and empower the modern women to become a symbol of strength and kindness, each with her own beautiful and unique way to make a difference in the world.
