Chinese Canadian Stories: Uncommon Histories from a Common Past is a collaborative project between the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, and various campus and community-wide partners, including the Stanford Spatial History Project. Funded by the Citizenship and Immigration Canada's Community Historical Recognition Program (CHRP), the project is developing a one-stop web portal dedicated to collecting, digital archiving, accessing, and distributing information about Chinese Canadian history. The Spatial History Lab's role will be to create a flagship visualization of a database of 97,123 Chinese who were recorded in the Chinese Head Tax Register up to 1949, that includes personal names, village of birth, district of birth, date of registration, port of arrival, and vessel name.
