  • ACCE Video Production:
  • Dragon Spirits (01:47) Mins

    “The Unknown Side of the Dragon” was produced by ACCE with the assistance of the Multicultural History Society of Ontario. It was presented at the 2003 ACCE Awards Gala. It documents the contributions of Chinese Canadians in the Canadian military services in World War I and World War II. The sacrifices of the Chinese Canadian war veterans paved the way for the removal of the Chinese Head Tax and Chinese Exclusion Act, a regretful page in Canadian history. The film was subsequently broadcast by CFMT-TV, now known as OMNI-TV.

    “Dragon Spirit” was produced by ACCE and presented at the 2001 ACCE Awards Gala. It is a historical film documenting the struggles, triumphs and contributions of Chinese immigrants and entrepreneurs in Canada. This was the first attempt by ACCE to look into the past to examine the roots of Chinese Canadians as a guide to who are in the present and what we may do in the future.

    Through this film, ACCE aims to recognize the past sacrifices of our ancestors and to show how today’s fair and just society in which businesses can survive and thrive was formed.
