Asian Policy Professionals Network (APPN) is a grassroots non-profit group of individuals with Asian heritage and work experience in public policy. We are passionate about public policy issues that impact the Asian-Canadian community.

Founded in January 2021, APPN is based in Toronto and led by an interim Board of Directors. Currently, we are building our presence in the GTA with plans to expand across Canada and North America.
