The Vancouver Chinatown Foundation is a registered non-profit organization committed to the revitalization of Chinatown, one of Canada’s most iconic neighbourhoods in the historic heart of Vancouver. The Foundation is dedicated to building a more resilient and inclusive community by promoting the well-being of those in need, while preserving Chinatown’s irreplaceable cultural heritage. As a community builder, the Vancouver Chinatown Foundation mobilizes resources and acts as a catalyst by bringing together thoughtful minds with on-the-ground insight -- people who care about our community -- to help solve some of our city’s biggest challenges.
Our community projects focus on creating a lasting positive impact such as affordable housing, seniors housing, and cultural and economic development.
"There are spaces we will need to transform simply because we need the resource. And there are certain spaces that should never be touched because of other values that they hold."
