Welcome to Abdalians Association of Canada
The Abdalians Association of Canada (TAAC) is a non-profit organization founded in 2019. Our objective is to provide a platform for the Alumni of Cadet College Hasanabdal in Canada.
The association aims to facilitate collaboration, mentorship, community service, and networking within our growing Alumni in Canada as well as for fostering ties with the greater Abdalian community globally.
The Alumni of Cadet College Hasan Abdal (Abdalians) have contributed a lot to Pakistan and other countries around the world. Abdalians share a proud legacy of being global citizens.
The alma mater was founded in 1952 by the internationally renowned educationist and scholar, having the British background – late Mr. Hugh Catchpole – as the the-then first residential institution of it’s kind in Pakistan. It is situated in idyllic surroundings, at the junction of Grand Trunk Road and Karakoram Highway. The campus is spread over 100 acres of academic and administrative buildings, residential blocks, sports fields, tennis courts and swimming pools providing a ideal setting for the physical and intellectual development of 550 of its students
TAAC- The Abdalian Star is Born
The untold story, thus far, of the creation of TAAC, short for The Abdalian Association Canada – that includes COVID-19 mitigating initiatives, community-outreach-programs (COPs), philanthropy, and more, unfolds here – welcome to an Abdalian journey, like no other.
What started as an informal gathering of like minded Abdalians in Canada, with an ‘informal’ meeting at the residence of Dr. Khaqan Khan, on a plush afternoon, on September 28, 2018, went on to become the historic beginning of the story of the Abdalians in Canada. It was a mammoth occasion in our short but exciting history: more than 78 Abdalians were in attendance, most with their ‘better-halves’, some even with the children too. The overall number of more than 120 individuals,on hand that day, was a testament to the Abdalian spirit. As usual, the hospitality of Dr. Khaqan Khan, supported by some of the equally young and enthusiastic ‘juniors’, was at full display…all the invitees and attendees were delighted to establish contact – the camaraderie of CCH was at its usual display.
