The Vancouver Chinatown Foundation is a registered charity founded in 2011. The organization is characterized by a spirit of entrepreneurship, innovation and a passion to help the revitalization of Chinatown, one of Canada’s most iconic neighborhoods and 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. Our ongoing projects focus on creating a lasting positive impact such as affordable housing, seniors housing, and cultural and economic development.
We have a vision of a prosperous, vibrant, and inclusive Chinatown, where people want to live, work and play. Revitalization efforts must find a balance between preserving tradition and enabling a sustainable future for Vancouver’s Chinatown.
The Chinatown of the future is a celebration of the richness that all migrants bring to communities, of the unique products and experiences that are generated when different cultures meet.
We aspire to build a stronger, more resilient, and inclusive community, and to promote the wellbeing of those in need, while also preserving our city’s irreplaceable cultural heritage.
