Take Root in Canada

February 1 – February 8, 2001

Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery

This exhibition is to trace the history of Chinese Canadians in their efforts to take root in Canada.

Canada is a country of immigrants. Some ethnic groups could start a new life easily soon after their arrival in Canada, but some other groups, such as the Chinese immigrants, had to eke out a living before they could establish themselves and integrate into Canadian society.
