The Asia-Canada timeline presented here is a chronological record of over 250 years of history since the first Chinese settlers helped build a trading post in Nootka Sound. The timeline touches on the settlement history of various Asian groups, the discrimination that many suffered in our early history, cultural accomplishments, political firsts, biographies, the two-way relationship that has evolved with Canada and its Pacific neighbours, and the gradual changes through which Canadian society came to accept the rights and equality of its Asian immigrants.

The timeline events are linked to articles within the web site and to external links for more extensive coverage of the topic in The Canadian Encyclopedia.
