Vancouver, BC, Canada: Our Changing Chinatown

  • 288 East Hastings Street Vancouver, BC V6A 1P1 Canada (map)

 Walk with the Chinatown Youth Coalition and bear witness to development pressures threatening a way of life that has defined and protected the community’s low-income Chinese residents and businesses for generations. Hear community responses within the contexts of social justice and the right to remain, food security and community organizing. How can the needs of economic development also respect and serve the needs of a living community and culture of a National Historic Site and one of Vancouver’s founding neighbourhoods?
