Discover a compelling chapter of Canadian history through the experiences of Chinese Canadian women. Their stories demonstrate the contributions they made to their communities and to Canada, and the obstacles they overcame during the Exclusion Period (1923-1947) and subsequent decades of discriminatory immigration policies (1947-1967).
The Chinese Canadian Women, 1923-1967 website, features four exhibits, a collection database, two activities, education resources for teachers and resources for community engagement. Thirty-three new oral history interviews and over 1,000 historical photographs and records are brought together in this website.
This project was made possible through funding from the Government of Canada (Citizenship and Immigration Canada, Community Historical Recognition Program).
