SkyTeam - Converting my Miles: Skymiles to Aeroplan/Asia Miles
I usually travel with AC and CX between Canada and HK, but I got a lot of Skymiles when I traveled to the US with my family with Northwest back then.
Because of the limited usage of Skymiles in Canada, I am wondering if there is any possible way, other than points.com, that I can convert my Skymiles to either Aeroplan or Asia Miles?
Thanks in advance!

Welcome to FT!
Unfortunately, the answer to your question is no. It's generally not even possible to transfer miles within an alliance, let alone from a member of one alliance to a member of another alliance.
How many SkyPesos do you have? We might be able to suggest some awards that you could get that you would be able to find useful. (For instance, AF J awards TATL often are available out of Canada, to the point that some US SkyMiles members have to route north of the border to get across the pond at low mileage levels.)

points.com exists to exploit flyers who have no other avenue to transfer miles.:(
Possible transfers outside of points.com are listed here:
With only a few exceptions, they all comes with punishing devaluations.:mad:

Thank you guys for your help! That's sad.
Combining with my family (as I am considering to share them among the family), I have approximately 84,000 Skymiles in total!

The issue is that to combine miles into a single account costs a transfer fee, and it's usually not a good deal. A TATL award in coach is 60K, so if you've got that many miles in an account, you might be able to get such a trip booked.
