8th Annual Canada Day Rally by Head Tax Families Society of Canada

June 27, 2013 Leave a comment

Join the  Head Tax Families Society of Canada  for the 8th Annual Canada Day Rally at Keefer & Columbia, Monument to Chinese-Canadian Veterans in Chinatown, Vancouver



On June 22, 2006, on behalf of the Government of Canada, the Prime Minister apologized in the House of Commons for the implementation of the Chinese Head Tax. As part of the apology and redress the Conservatist government decided to compensate the surviving Head Tax payers and surviving spouse of Head Tax payers only.

The objectives of the Head Tax Families Society of Canada are:

1. to seek a just and honourable redress for all families affected by the Chinese Head Tax and the exclusionary Chinese Immigration Acts,
2. to educate Canadians on the contributions of Chinese pioneers, and
3. to promote racial harmony amongst all Canadians

The Head Tax Families Society of Canada believes an inclusive redress begins with the Three Manifests:

1. The Government of Canada will recognize and acknowledge redress is incomplete;
2. The Government of Canada will commit to good faith negotiations with Head Tax families currently excluded from the June 22, 2006 announcement and who are seeking direct redress; and
3. The Government of Canada will act in the spirit of one certificate, one claim
