General objective: Build a common vision of development of Chinatown.

  • Pre-consultation — Specify the objectives and activities of the consultation process in cooperation with actors in Chinatown (Spring 2019)

  • Phase 1—Produce a diagnostic profile of the issues and needs of the community (July to December 2019)

  • Phase 2—Formulate an action plan (in progress)


Summary report of the needs and expectations of the community

During the Summer and Fall of 2019, six participative activities with the public as well as several meetings with a Chinatown advisory committee made up of local actors helped produce a situational diagnostic of the needs and expectations of the community.

  • Identity and outreach (institutions to spread Chinese culture and cultural programming)

  • Commercial vitality (local economic development and main street revitalization)

  • Quality of life (sports, leisure and social services)
