Edmonton Chinatown

Welcome to Chinatown

Centered on 97th Street, east of downtown, Edmonton’s Chinatown is filled with colorful shops featuring imported Chinese goods and clothing, and delightful places to sample a wide range of Chinese food. It features an elaborate Chinese gateway (Harbin Gate), and colorful pagoda-style roofs.

Chinatown, along with the adjacent Little Italy area, is part of a special business revitalization zone (BRZ) designated by the City of Edmonton. It also includes a significant Vietnamese population, and blends into the multicultural Avenue of Nations (107 Avenue).

Chinatown began with just a handful of Chinese men in the early 1900s. By 1920, the population had increased to over 500.
