Chinese Canadian Artifacts Project launches at Cumberland Museum

The Chinese Canadian Artifacts Project has launched at the Cumberland Museum.

The project brings together and makes available over 6,000 artifacts and archival items held by 16 local and regional museums throughout B.C.

Anyone with Internet access can virtually enter these participating museums and discover much about the everyday lives of Chinese Canadians – their resilience in the face of racist exclusions, their work and family life from decades past, and their ongoing community contributions.

The Cumberland Museum and Archives was thrilled to contribute over 1,200 items from its vast collection of artifacts and archives from, or related to, Cumberland Chinatown.
