Past DLC Projects
The Chinese Canadian History Project Council at the David Lam Centre is currently developing educational materials for use by schools, community organizations, and tourism to educate students, the Canadian public and visitors to Canada about the contributions of Chinese Canadians, over more than two centuries, to the building of Canada.
This documentary, released for distribution in November 2000, delves into the history of the Chinese workers without whom Canada’s national railway could never have been realized. This film includes interviews with Chinese-Canadians whose parents and grandparents built the railroad-and indeed the nation-give life to this poignant documentary that retells and rethinks a vital chapter in Canada’s history.
