New travelling exhibit
Chinese Languages in Canada
Chinese languages have existed in Canada since 1788 and are now spoken in every province and territory. Chinese is not a single language; it is many languages, and those spoken in Canada each have their own history. Over 1.4 million people speak Chinese languages in Canada! We invite you to visit this exhibit and find out more about the richness of these languages.
We are passionate about languages!
The Canadian Language Museum works to promote an appreciation of all the languages used in Canada. Language is central to the cultural identity of every Canadian and has been integral in shaping Canada’s development. Few countries can match Canada’s rich and varied language heritage, which includes Indigenous languages from coast to coast, the official languages of French and English, and the hundreds of languages brought to this country by more recent immigrants.
