Consultation Process & Timelines
There were two phases of the Chinese Canadian Museum public consultation.
The first phase included an online discussion opportunity this website with general questions about the process. People were able to provide feedback from Dec. 7, 2018 to Jan. 4, 2019.
The B.C. government and the working group used this feedback to help plan the community meetings in January and February 2019.
The second phase included eight meetings in five communities as well as 1-on-1 meetings with interested stakeholders, and more specific questions posted on the website.
In July 2019, the government released the What We Heard Report summarizing people’s ideas from the engagement. The B.C. government will consider this feedback as it builds the business case for a Chinese Canadian museum.
