The Hong Kong-Canada Crosscurrents Project features life experiences of those who migrated between Canada and Hong Kong. In the last 50 years, a large flow of migrants from both directions has connected Hong Kong and Canada, transforming both societies. The Hong Kong-Canada Crosscurrents Project provides coordination and depository infrastructure for the research, collection development and public education of the effects of migrations and cultural connections between Hong Kong and Canada from the 1960s to the 2010s.
The project web site is located at: https://hongkong.library.utoronto.ca/crosscurrents2
The launch of the project was held on 27 February 2014 at the Richard Charles Lee Canada-Hong Kong Library.
The Hong Kong-Canada Crosscurrent Project partners include:

The new interactive website for the Hong Kong-Canada Crosscurrents Project is tentatively scheduled to launch in May 2014.
