On July 13, 2021, CCHSBC officially launched our Lytton Community Relief Fundraiser in support of Lytton First Nations and the Lytton Chinese Museum. While the future of Lytton is currently unknown, we are heartened by the support that the entire Lytton community is receiving towards its recovery and rebuild. We continue to be in direct contact with our colleagues from Lytton First Nation and Lorna Fandrich (Lytton Chinese History Museum) and will be working closely with them to determine the best ways to support their recovery and rebuilding.
To thank our donors for their generous contributions, we will be gifting donors with copies of our publications and more. One of the publications that we will be gifting is Lily Siewsan Chow’s Blood and Sweat Over the Railway Tracks: Chinese labourers constructing the Canadian Pacific Railway (1880-1885)* which has significant historical ties to the Lytton area. Please note that this book is currently being printed, and we will ship it when it arrives in our warehouse. Canada-wide shipping is included as part of your generous donation. All donations above $20 will receive a CRA-approved tax receipt.
