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.
