North Toronto Historical Society May 2021 Program: Jean Lumb: A Woman of Many Firsts
May 26, 2021 @ 7:30 pm
Jean Lumb, C.M., was the first restauranteur and first Chinese Canadian woman invested into the Order of Canada. She and her husband owned Kwong Chow Restaurant that introduced Chinese food to the who’s who of Toronto. A trailblazer and community spokesperson whose legacy lives on today, Jean played a pivotal role in changing immigration laws that separated families and in saving Chinatowns in Toronto and across Canada. Her daughter, author Arlene Chan, will tell Jean’s remarkable story.
