Chinese Cultural Life
Featured Article
WeddingChinese New Year, the Dragon Boat Festival, and traditional wedding ceremonies are just a few of the celebrations in which many Chinese people (as well as those of non-Asian background) participate. Alberta's Chinese community is dedicated to preserving and sharing their rich heritage for all fellow Albertans and Canadians to enjoy. Perhaps the areas where the influence and aspects of Chinese culture is most evident today are in the Chinatowns that exist in some of the larger towns and cities in the province. Here we present a profile of Edmonton's Chinatown. In fact, some suggest that Edmonton has many Chinatowns. Join us here to find out just how influential Chinatowns across the province have been, the contributions they have made for both the Chinese community and all of Alberta and how Edmonton's Chinatown has grown and prospered over the years.
