On Friday, September 17th, 2010 at 1pm, a permanent monument commemorating the pioneers of the Chinese Community in Newfoundland and Labrador will be unveiled in St. John's at the City Hall Annex Park on New Gower Street (at the site of the first Chinese Laundry in Newfoundland - 1895). section01
This monument is sponsored by NLHRO Inc.*, the City of St. John.s, and the Grand Concourse Authority, and funded through Citizenship and Immigration Canada. This monument is the first of a number of planned initiatives by NLHRO Inc. commemorating the lives and contributions of the Chinese who came to the Dominion of Newfoundland prior to 1949. section02
*NLHRO Inc. (Newfoundland and Labrador Headtax Redress Organization) is an incorporated body founded in 2007 by descendants of head tax payers, their families and supporters. Its mission is to promote an awareness of, and education on, the Newfoundland Head Tax (1906 - 1949), its impact on the Chinese-Newfoundland community, and the contributions of the pioneering Chinese immigrants who made the Dominion of Newfoundland their first home in Canada. section03
Besides the monument, NLHRO Inc. is working on three related projects to recognize the history and contributions of the Chinese in Newfoundland and Labrador:
  1. a digital exhibit/website where the pictures, stories and memories of the Chinese community will be shared;
  2. an exhibit depicting the experiences of the early Chinese immigrants, including their lives under the Newfoundland Chinese Head Tax (to be displayed at a suitable venue); and
  3. an educational resource kit to be distributed to the public school boards in Newfoundland and Labrador.
section04
We need your help in making these projects a success!

We are looking for material to be included on the website, the exhibit, and in the educational kit. This could include:

  • photographs of businesses (e.g., restaurants, laundries)
  • photographs of people, families
  • old restaurant menus, signs, laundry bills, advertisements
  • other items we can photograph, such as old trunks, clothing
  • your memories and stories
section05
We would also like to include your memories and stories of you and your family.s history in Newfoundland and Labrador. Tell us about how and why your family/family members came to Newfoundland and what they did. section06
