The Chinatown Safety Council is composed of community groups, non-profits, businesses, enforcement agencies, City of Edmonton departments and REACH Edmonton. Together, we work towards collaboratively understanding the safety and well-being needs of the community. Working alongside community members, we aim to develop safety and well-being projects that are designed by the community and are owned by the community.


The Chinatown Safety Council convenes and works alongside community partners to do the following:

  • Further the safety pillars as highlighted by the 2017 Chinatown Strategy
  • Convene and connect community members, businesses, social agencies, non-profits, city departments and enforcement agencies to develop stronger relationships with one another.
  • Understand what the common goals, alignments and areas of needs are among Chinatown community stakeholders.
  • Assist with coordination of initiatives identified by Chinatown community partners.
  • Provide Chinatown safety and well-being updates to all Chinatown community members.
