Century Winds of Change Mural, Chinatown

Image from Century's Winds of Change Mural activity in Things to do in Chinatown Vancouver

The Century Winds of Change Mural represents the achievements and struggles that Chinese-Canadians faced in the span of one hundred and forty years.

Displaying colourful images from 1860 onwards, Chinatown's Century Winds of Change Mural tracks famous Chinese-Canadians throughout the many years they fought for the rights of those Chinese who were born or immigrated to Canada. These include Dr. Sun Yat-Sen (the Father of Modern China), Wing Wong (a military soldier in WWII), Cam Yow Won (First Canadian-born Chinese to vote), Douglas Jung (First Chinese Federal legislative member) and David D. Lam (First Chinese Governor of British Columbia).
