This July marks the 100th anniversary of what is commonly known as the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1923, which banned virtually all Chinese immigration to Canada until its repeal in 1947. For nearly 25 years, this racist policy separated families by prohibiting immigrant spouses and children from joining what was a predominantly male Chinese population in Canada. Though more than 17,000 Chinese men worked in perilous conditions to help build the western section of the Canadian Pacific Railway between 1881 and 1885, the Government imposed a "head tax" to discourage Chinese immigration when their labour was no longer needed. The Act also required all those of Chinese descent living in Canada, even those born in this country, to register with the government and carry certain certificates, or risk detainment or deportation. It is for those reasons that July 1, when the Act was passed, is also called "humiliation day" by some in the Chinese Canadian community. We highlight this injustice today so that we can recommit ourselves to combatting anti-Asian racism and celebrating the strength and resilience of the Chinese Canadian community Learn more about the Exclusion Act on the Government of Canada's website.
