21st Annual Ancestral Ceremony

The Chinese Association of Montreal held their 21st Annual Ancestral Ceremony.

This annual event is to commemorate the Chinese ancestors who came to Canada to build the Canadian Pacific Railway. It was these pioneers who created what we now know as Chinatown.

As the president of the Chan Association, Jimmy Chan had the honor of being the Ceremonial Host of this year’s event.

This was a very proud moment for Jimmy, as he states:

Today is an important day to commemorate our Ancestors from our Chinese community in Chinatown (June 12th, 2016).

I had the honour of hosting this year
