Chinese Community

Edmonton Chinatown

Chinese Canadians have had a long-standing presence in Edmonton. The first Chinese to arrive in the city were brothers Chung Gee and Chung Yan, who traveled north from Calgary in 1892 and opened a laundry. The Chinese community grew slowly, and by 1899 only thirteen Chinese men and three Chinese businesses (two laundries and a restaurant) are recorded as having been in Edmonton.
