Chinatown celebration

The revitalization focus in Chinatown creates a ripple effect. A Chinatown that’s a safe and welcoming place for businesses, residents, students and visitors allows each group to contribute to Edmonton’s overall vibrancy and economic success.

We're celebrating May as Asian Heritage Month, an opportunity to honour and celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Canadians of Asian heritage!
