We are pleased to announce the 2021 winners of the CCHSBC Awards!
Join us for this special event reflecting on and celebrating the work of acclaimed writer, archivist, historian, and 2020 CCHSBC Honouree Paul Yee. Presenting virtually from Toronto, Paul will take us back to the beginnings of the 1986 "Saltwater City" exhibition that was featured as part of Vancouver's centennial celebrations. He will be joined by Jeffrey Wong (Wong's Benevolent Association) where they will chat about Jeffrey's own journey with archiving generations of aging material.
With the support of our special guest, as well as sponsors and other supporters, CCHSBC will be raffling numerous prizes, including autographed copies of some of Paul's publications. All proceeds will go towards CCHSBC's educational programming and scholarships.
Don't miss this incredible evening of celebration, raffle prizes and more! Get your tickets now! Space is limited!
This event is supported by the Chinese Canadian Museum Society of British Columbia.
CCHSBC's Awards Committee would like to announce that we have extended the nomination and application deadline for the Dr. Edgar Wickberg Academic Prizes to March 15, 2021! Interested Undergraduate and Graduate students are encouraged to apply. Please check our dedicated webpage for more details.
Happy Chinese New Year! We hope that everyone has had a good start to 2021 and is staying safe and healthy.
The CCHSBC Board is working hard to put together programming for the upcoming year. With the current COVID pandemic, our programming will remain online (virtually through Zoom) until it is safe to meet in person. We hope to bring you exciting new programming and activities including a virtual tour of Chinatown, panel discussions, lectures and more.
The best way to stay up-to-date with our programming is to become a member (which will give you access to our newsletters) and like us on Facebook or Twitter.
For those who have purchased memberships in January and are still waiting for their updated cards and promotion code access, we apologize for the delay. CCHSBC is 100% run by volunteers, and many of our volunteers and board members are giving their time in addition to working full-time and caring for their families. We are working at processing the memberships as quickly as possible. Rest assured that we will get to you.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us. We will respond as quickly as we can.
