Join us at the Chinese Canadian Museum, located in the historic Wing Sang Building, for a poignant and insightful tour and social acknowledging the 100-year anniversary of the Chinese Exclusion Act. This is an opportunity to reflect on the past, recognize the impact of historical injustices, and celebrate the resilience of the Chinese Canadian and other immigrant communities.

The event will include a tour of the Museum’s exhibition, "The Paper Trail to the 1923 Chinese Exclusion Act" and a social on the beautiful rooftop of the Wing Sang Building. We are also thrilled to announce that the Honourable Justice Randall Wong will be attending to share some insights on the Museum's significance and the lasting impact of the Chinese Exclusion Act.

Join us at the Chinese Canadian Museum to commemorate a century of resilience and reflection. Don't miss this historic event!
