Retirees Chie Yau Leung and his wife Chie Wen Leung were offered a chance of a new life in “Gold Mountain” (the Chinese name for the regions of North America, including British Columbia). Sponsored by Chie Wen’s sister, the husband and wife chose to pursue a better future for their three children: Kin Wah, Kin Hun and Kin Fun. The Chinese character “kin” stands for “to build,” and build, they did.
The family had to convert all of their savings from Chinese Yuan to Hong Kong dollars in order to purchase the necessities for their relocation. Almost penniless, the family arrived in Vancouver in 1981; their air tickets purchased with money borrowed from Chie Wen’s sister. They managed to rent the attic of a house in what is now the Hastings Sunrise community.
The hardworking and ambitious family immediately began to carve out their new life: Chie Yau and his youngest son Kin Hun worked as dishwashers; Kin Wah and his sister Kin Fun worked in Chinatown restaurants and matriarch Chie Wen found work as a babysitter. Soon after, they immersed themselves in learning English at Vancouver Community College
