in English
This online portal is created by the Multicultural History Society of Ontario (MHSO) to bring together over 1,000 historical photographs, 33 oral history interviews and numerous other archival materials about Chinese Canadian women to address their life experiences, challenges and accomplishments. The years between 1923 and 1967 in Canada were marked by discriminatory immigration policy. During this period of time, severe restrictions on Chinese immigration, coupled with prior patterns of Chinese migration, led to disproportionately few women within the Chinese Canadian population. In spite of this, Chinese Canadian women were able to make a significant impact on their communities and the country that they called home.
