Crossing Boundaries: Past, Present and Future

November 27, 2012


  • 4 – 6 p.m.
  • First Peoples’ House
  • University of Victoria

Hosted by the Office of the Vice-President Academic and Provost, UVic and the Royal BC Museum

The Honorable Dr. Lillian Eva Quan Dyck is a member of the
Gordon First Nation in Saskatchewan, the first female First Nations
and first Canadian born Chinese Canadian senator.

Her keynote presentation provides an opportunity to explore
more the histories of immigration and settlement in Canada, with
a focus on interactions between Natives and Chinese individuals,
the responses of the host society, of native and non-natives, and how these attitudes both endured and changed overtime.

Through the story of Senator Dyck’s father, Quan Leen Yok’s arrival to Canada 100 years ago, we can celebrate the contributions of all Chinese Canadians.

Free and open to the public | Seating is limited
