Creating A Cultural Experience Chinese Dragon

Edmontonians continue to come to McCauley for the cultural experience. The community connects Chinatown and Little Italy and is becoming the place to visit and take part in its year-round celebrations.

The McCauley Revitalization strategy has sparked investor interest in the revitalization of Chinatown and Little Italy as destinations of choice. Current discussions are focused on creating walkable, attractive themed villages that celebrate the history and cultural heritage of both areas.
