What is this engagement about?
The Province of British Columbia and the City of Vancouver are working together to have Vancouver’s Chinatown designated a United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage site. As part of this, the Province and the City have also committed to establishing a Chinese Canadian Museum.
The Minister of State for Trade George Chow led the public consultation process with support from a Working Group with vast experience in Chinese Canadian heritage, museum development, city planning and provincial history. The project was also supported by the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Lisa Beare.
Minister of State Chow wanted to be sure your ideas about Chinese Canadian history and heritage were considered in the early stages of planning the museum. The creation of this museum is for the people of British Columbia and its visitors, and we want you to help shape it. As such, he asked your thoughts for how best to recognize key moments in our shared history.
Feedback will be summarized and used as input into establishing a Chinese Canadian Museum.
