Chinatown Concern Group
– Mainly consists of Chinese residents of Chinatown and Downtown Eastside
– A group under the Carnegie Community Centre Association
– We see that Chinatown is changing very rapidly. Chinatown is looking less and less like Chinatown and the Chinese community in Chinatown is being marginalized. Therefore we organize together, through meetings, discussions, and action, to protect Chinatown
– We are concerned about Chinatown’s future affordability and want to see more low-income housing and seniors housing in Chinatown.
We initiated a petition campaign calling for an immediate moratorium on all new market development projects in Chinatown until there is comprehensive community consultation and clear policies to protect the future of Vancouver’s Chinatown.
