The Canada-China Center for Financial Studies is a joint centre between Saint Mary's and Nanjing Audit University (NAU) in Nanjing, China.

In 2013, a group of Saint Mary's Finance faculty members including President Colin Dodds, Drs. Najah Attig, Francis Boabang, and George Ye flew to China to attend the opening ceremony and sessions on financial innovation and risk management. The contingent also held a workshop with a class of Chartered Financial Analyst students at NAU to learn more about the issues they face.
