Catalogue Entry

Approximatley 4,000 Chinese had made their home in Alberta when the Chinese Exclusion Act was passed in 1923. For the first half of the twentieth century, only a dozen Chinese families existed in Calgary amid several hundred married bachelors. 


The first generation of Chinese Canadians who grew up in Calgary faced racial discrimination, making it almost impossible to find work in mainstream businesses outside Chinatown. In Calgary, residents occasionally attempted to pursuade the city to introduce and enforce restrictive measures against the Chinese community. 


Our Chosen Land includes historical evidence, letters, and articles, highlighting racism and discrimination against Chinese Canadian citizens.


1923 年《排華法案》通過時,大約有 4,000 名中國人在亞省定居。在 20 世紀上半葉,在數百名的已婚男士中,卡爾加里卻只有十幾個中國家庭。


在卡城長大的第一代華裔加拿大人面臨種族歧視,幾乎不可能在唐人街以外的主流企業找到工作。在卡爾加里,居民偶爾會試圖說服市政府對華人社區採取和實施限制措施。


我們的《百年滄桑》展覽中展示了各種歷史證據、信件和文章,突出了對華裔加拿大公民當時所備受的種族主義和歧視。
