Vancouver Chinatown: Food Security, Culture & Urban Development

Join us and SFU David Lam Centre for our first public presentation of our Vancouver Chinatown Food Security report! Come hear about how the staggering loss of fresh food assets is impacting the neighbourhood.

We've also put together a stellar panel to discuss the external factors influencing the loss of businesses in Vancouver, provide updates on work by stakeholders to address the issues, and explore potential solutions. The panel will be moderated by Chinatown organizer Melody Ma.

Light snacks provided during break.

Registrations required. Space is limited.

See you there!



In July 2017, hua foundation released the “Vancouver Chinatown Food Security Report”, where it was documented that Vancouver’s Chinatown has lost 50% of its fresh food assets since 2009. At this event, the report’s lead author, Angela Ho, will detail her findings and share insights into the impacts these changes have on the neighbourhood.

The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with Andy Yan (SFU City Program Director), Wesley S Regan (City of Vancouver Community Economic Development Planner), and Elvy Del Bianco (Vancity Program Manager for Cooperative Partnerships) to explore ideas on how various stakeholders can play a role to retain and revive these unique spaces where history, culture, food security, local economy, and policy intersects.
