Heart of Our City

The Vancouver Chinatown Foundation was established in 2009 to honour a culture and community established in Vancouver more than 100 years ago, and whose history is integral to our city, our province, and our country.

Chinatown and the Downtown Eastside are at the very heart of Vancouver. As a community leader and convener, the Vancouver Chinatown Foundation mobilizes resources and acts as a catalyst by bringing together thoughtful minds with on-the-ground insight - people who care about our community - to help solve some of the our city’s biggest challenges.

We aspire to build a stronger, more resilient, and inclusive community, and to promote the wellbeing of those in need, while also preserving our city’s irreplaceable cultural heritage.

To that end, we invest in projects that focus on long term, sustainable solutions and positive change including affordable housing and seniors housing.

  • 58 West Hastings will provide a safe place to live, an exceptional quality of living and strong sense of community.
