Chinatown Memorial Square is located in the heart of Vancouver's Chinatown at the corner of Keefer Street and Columbia Street. This valued public space hosts important community events such as the Remembrance Day ceremony, and draws many visitors to the neighbourhood where they can learn about the contributions of Chinese people in Canada. It also provides a space for community members to honour their culture and traditions.

This project is an important part of Chinatown's living heritage. We are working with the community, stakeholders and people from across Vancouver to improve Chinatown Memorial Square as an accessible public space while developing a design that enhances its culture and history.

    Thank you to everyone who participated in our most recent phase of engagement where we heard from you on the draft vision and goals for the project along with some ideas on redesigning and possibly increasing the size of the space.


    We will be sharing the engagement summary on what we heard during Phase 2 later this year by posting it on this website and distributing the link through our networks.


    We are now in the process of retaining a design consultant who will use feedback we have received to work on conceptual design options for the square. We will be presenting these options for your feedback when they’re ready.

  • Phase 2 survey deadline extended until December 13!

    After reviewing your feedback (see Phase 1 Public Engagement Summary Report), we have drafted a vision and set of principles and goals for the project. We're also sharing some ideas and seeking feedback on increasing the size of the square.
