Completed in October 2010, this cultural and colourful gateway in Ottawa’s Chinatown neighbourhood was constructed to mark the 40th anniversary of Canada-China diplomacy. Now a landmark on Somerset Street, the arch welcomes all those who pass under it into a dynamic and vibrant community within Ottawa.
