Abstract

This report examines the experiences of the Chinese community in St. John’s, Newfoundland, prior to Confederation with Canada in 1949. It argues that before Confederation, life for the Chinese in St. John’s was lonely, filled with tedious drudgery, and alienating. It was not until Newfoundland’s union with Canada in 1949 and eventual changes in immigration law in 1967 that potential for a meaningful future for both themselves and their families took hold. These political changes eventually allowed the Chinese in Newfoundland to become an official part of the social fabric of Newfoundland and validated their cultural traditions as ethnic Chinese.
