Victoria's Chinatown is a designated National Historic Site that is the oldest one of its kind in Canada and second oldest in North America (after the one in San Francisco, California), dating back to 1858. Its beginnings stem from the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush at the time, triggering Chinese migration from both California and China. Its size and population peaked in 1911, until reducing in size until the 1980s when the neighborhood was revitalized.
