Chan took figure skating lessons because he wanted to learn how to skate in order to play hockey, but then liked figure skating right away. He practiced many other sports including tennis, skiing, swimming and taekwondo. Chan's long-time coach Osborne Colson died in July 2006 at age 90. Chan admires four-time World Champion Kurt Browning for his personality and admires World Champion Todd Eldredge for his work ethics. Chan's parents are immigrants from China. His mother immigrated from Hong Kong to Canada in her late 20s, his father came as a young boy to Canada. Chan's father played ping pong and coached a ping pong team in Quebec. Chan and coach Christy Krall parted ways shortly after the 2012 World Championships. He also lists Eddie Shipstad (harness) as his coach.
