Calgary Chinatown

Welcome to Chinatown

Calgary is best known for its famous rodeo and its winter sports. Surprisingly, it is also home to Canada’s 4th largest Chinatown by population (after Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal), and the largest by area. In the 2012 municipal census, Chinatown had a population of 1,577.

The blocks immediately surrounding Chinatown are also multi-ethnic, with a strong Asian influence.

Calgary’s Chinatown was officially founded in 1910, and celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2010. However, there was a strong Chinese presence dating back to the mid-19th century.
