Scope and content

Series consists of records that provide insight into the history of immigration and settlement in Canada. The Chung collection is renowned for its extensive and unique collections on immigration and settlement, and the photographs, historical documents, and artefacts in this series illustrate the struggles and eventual successes of Chinese immigrants and their descendants in fields such as business, politics, and the arts. The predominant focus of this series is Chinese immigration and settlement, from the discovery of gold in British Columbia through the construction of the transcontinental railway, exclusionary immigration policies, and the development and growth of Chinese communities in Canada. In addition to Chinese and Asian immigration and settlement, this series also contains material related to Scottish immigration in Canada.

This series has been arranged into four subseries: Chinese immigration and settlement to Canada, the Yip Family and Yip Sang Company, the Chinese Freemasons (Cheekungtong), and Clandonald and Scottish immigration to Canada.
