History

The Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association (CCBA) was established in Victoria in 1884, and served as the main representative body for Chinese in Canada until 1908, when the Chinese Consulate was established in Ottawa. The CCBA's activities have included protesting against racial discrimination, mediating in community disputes concerning business deals and treatment of servants, providing financial assistance to Chinese individuals and families in other parts of Canada, China and Cuba, and monitoring the range of medical care offered by Chinese hospitals in British Columbia. In 1899, the CCBA built the Chinese Hospital in Victoria, which later developed into a boarding house for elderly Chinese men.
