Chinese Canadian Historic Places Receive Provincial Recognition

Twenty-one places of historical significance to the Chinese Canadian community are being provincially recognized under the Heritage Conservation Act fulfilling a commitment in the Chinese Historical Wrongs Consultation Final Report and Recommendations. The 21 sites were chosen from a list of 77 places nominated by British Columbians through an online form on Heritage BC's website in 2015. The 21 recognized sites paint a rich picture of the contributions Chinese Canadians have made to the development and prosperity of our province since the mid-19th century.

The recognized sites can be viewed on the Chinese Historic Places Interactive Map on Heritage BC's website. Use the icon for Provincially Recognized Places to view these sites.
