Asia-Canada

Historica Canada’s Asia/Canada website explores the Asian experience in Canada, the evolution of Canadian society itself, from exclusion to greater tolerance and an embrace of diversity, and Canada’s role as a Pacific nation. The project features a number of articles including profiles of many Asian cultures in Canada, changing attitudes toward multiculturalism in Canada and biographies of notable Asian Canadians, as well as a timeline of key events and a classroom quiz.

 

"My writing has been sustained, primarily, by two interests: racial hybridity and the local, the landscape of the Kootenays in southeastern BC; its mountains, lakes, and forests."
