Chinese Canadians in WWII

This is a page of resources about Chinese Canadians in WWII.

Chinese Canadian Military Museum

Located on the second floor at 555 Columbia Street, Vancouver, the museum is a non-profit dedicated to collecting and preserving the stories and records of the Canadian Chinese who served in World War II. If you’ve got a particular research question, they may be able to help. They’ve helped me.
