Our Journey Continues | 100 Years After the Chinese Immigration Act

A special exhibit honouring the multigenerational families who pursued their dreams and turned grievance into success.

One hundred years after the Chinese were barred from entering Canada, the descendants of those who paid the price have made exceptional inroads into Canadian culture and, in fact, defined who we are. No matter where we work today, Chinese Canadians are woven into the fabric of the Canadian story. This exhibit is a testament to the multigenerational families who, like all Canadian settlers, pursued their dreams and turned grievance into success.

Designed by the community-minded award-winning exhibit designers at Lost & Found.
