The Chinatown Strategy

     The Chinatown strategy has been developed through an integrated economic development approach supported by place-making and with actionable community led programming components.  The strategy is founded in economic development pillars that direct actions, all of which contribute collectively to guide Edmonton's Chinatown into the future. Together the actions capture the expressed needs of the community that embrace multiple and diverse aspects essential for a vibrant, economically sustainable place. Community led programming elements will enhance the effort to strengthen and activate Chinatown to ensure its resiliency for generations. 

     The Chinatown Strategy is community-driven and enabled. While the City of Edmonton has played a role in the development of the strategy, it has been the strong commitment on behalf of cultural organizations, the retail and business sector and community organization in Chinatown that has made it possible. It will be these collaborative community-based partnerships that will similarly drive the success of the Strategy as its actions are implemented.

Economic Development Pillars + Actions

The Chinatown Strategy is a series of actions developed in collaboration with community stakeholders to directly address the five key pillars established in the Chinatown Economic Development Plan.
