Prof Wong was the Vice-President of the Canadian Applied Mathematics Society in 1988 and the President in 1989 and 1990. During 1988-1991, he served on the Grants Selection Committee for Pure and Applied Mathematics, Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada. From 1991-1993, he was the Vice-President of the Canadian Mathematical Society, and from 1995-1997, he was the President of the Hong Kong Mathematical Society. Prof Wong was the Co-Editor-in-Chief of Methods and Applications of Analysis from 1993-1999. He is currently serving on the Editorial Board of twelve journals.

The honours bestowed on Prof Wong include the Killam Research Fellowship (1982-1984), one of the most prestigious awards for researchers given by the Canada Council, and the Rh Award for Outstanding Contributions to Scholarship and Research (1984) from the University of Manitoba. Prof Wong is holding the Fellowship of the Royal Society of Canada, an honour he obtained in 1993 through election. In 2004, he was awarded the Chevalier dans 1'Ordre National de la Legion d'Honneur.
