Winnie Cheung

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, THE PACIFIC CANADA HERITAGE CENTRE - MUSEUM OF MIGRATION

Winnie L. Cheung, a community-builder and writer, has worked as an educator in universities in both Hong Kong (birth home) and Vancouver (adopted home since 1986). She believes in building understanding to bridge differences through conversations and other forms of creative engagements.

Over the last three decades, Winnie has provided leadership to establish/sustain many projects that value diversity in conversations for better understanding and problem-solving. These included the Inter-Community Dialogues, Global Citizenship Project and Global Student Speakers Bureau at the University of British Columbia; the Dialogues Project at the City of Vancouver; and the Elders’ Circle of Reconciliation Canada. A published writer and art lover, she works hard to create public platforms for meaningful dialogues and story-telling to reveal and strengthen the common bonds in our diverse community, especially through the Laurier Institution, the Vancouver Asian Heritage Month Society and the PCHC-Museum of Migration Society.
