Canada Day Wreath Laying Ceremony at the Chinese Railroad Workers Monument
Join us at the Chinese Railroad Workers Monument in Northern Linear Park (4 Blue Jays Way, Toronto, South of Front St., East of Spadina Ave.) for our annual Canada Day Wreath Laying Ceremony in memory of Chinese Railroad Workers.
The Foundation to Commemorate the Chinese Railroad Workers in Canada (FCCRWC) is a registered charitable organization. The goals of the foundation include promoting the understanding and awareness of the contribution to Canada by the Chinese Railroad Workers who participated in the construction of the first transcontinental railway (the CPR) that united Canada geographically and politically; promoting the awareness of the government’s legislation of unjust Immigration Acts against the Chinese pioneers and their families; establishing scholarships; and sponsoring other Canadian charitable organizations to promote Chinese Canadian History.
