Chinese Canadian Stories

CCS_banner2Chinese Canadian Stories: Uncommon Histories from a Common Past is a collaborative, multidisciplinary project led by the University of British Columbia, funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s Community Historical Recognition Program (CHRP).  Partners include Simon Fraser University and various campus and community-wide partners.  This project will reshape the way all of us understand Canada, and reclaim the forgotten histories of peoples who have long been ignored in Canadian history.  The Irving K.
