The Chinese people have been contributing to Canada since the first group of Chinese laborers arrived on Canada’s west coast in the 1700s. The first large groups of Chinese workers appeared during the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush in the 1850s and their numbers grew with the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railroad. Along with their skills and work ethic, the Chinese also brought their food with them.
