Chinese Canadians and First Nations: 150 Years of Shared Experience

About the Chinese Canadian Historical Society of British Columbia

The Chinese Canadian Historical Society of British Columbia is a non-profit, participatory provincial organization dedicated to broadening our shared understanding of history of the Chinese in British Columbia through research, documentation, preservation and education.

CCHS has developed its own written resources (e.g. Finding Memories, Tracing Roots, Chinese Canadian Family Stories, and Eating Stories, a Chinese Canadian and Aboriginal Potluck).  We have also worked with many partners in public education programs on the history of the Chinese/First Nations in British Columbia, including the Anniversaries of Change Coalition, the Chinese Canadian/First Nation education curriculum initiative, the BC Teachers’ Federation and the Provincial Capital Commission.
