You are invited to attend a community forum:
Historical Discrimination Against Chinese People in Vancouver
This initiative is in response to a Council motion directing staff to: 
• research on past civic laws, regulations and policies that discriminated against Chinese residents in Vancouver;
• consult with the Chinese community, and;
• recommend steps and actions in support of reconciliation, including a public acknowledgement and formal apology.
As space is limited, registration is required to attend the forum. Please select one of the following:
Wednesday, May 17, 6 - 8 pm 
Vancouver Public Library, Central Branch, 350 West Georgia Street, Alma VanDusen and Peter Kaye Room
Wednesday, May 246 - 8 pm 
Vancouver City Hall, 453 West 12th Avenue, Ground Floor, Town Hall
Saturday, May 27, 10 am – 12 noon 
SUCCESS Choi Hall, 28 West Pender Street, (conducted mainly in Chinese)
These forums will provide opportunities to inform interested public on the preliminary research findings and to gather feedback on potential steps and actions which can prevent discrimination against any
individual or groups in the future.
