Journey to Freedom Day is celebrated annually in Canada on April 30. This day honours the brave refugees who fled Vietnam in a mass exodus after the Vietnam War. Many of those who fled either drowned in the sea or ended up in a refugee camp. However, Canada welcomed about 120,000 refugees on this historic day. This day also acknowledges the contributions of these Vietnamese refugees and the many Canadians who helped them settle into their new country.

China and Vietnam share geographical and cultural proximity. Due to this, Vietnam has always been a popular destination for Chinese immigrants. However, due to tensions from the Vietnam war, Chinese immigrants and native Vietnamese fled their country. The journey to Canada was long and dangerous, but fortunately, Canada welcomed these survivors with open arms.
