<!-- Infobox begins --> <!-- Infobox ends -->Calgary's Chinatown is the fourth largest in Canada after those in Vancouver,Toronto, and Montreal. The size of Calgary's Chinatown is indicative of the relatively high proportion of people of Asian descent living in the city.

The district is located along Centre Street in the northeast area of Downtown Calgary immediately north of the Downtown East Village. Calgary's Chinese Cultural Centre with its traditional architecture and decor (styled after the Temple of Heaven in Beijing ) is the largest facility of its kind in North America. The Dragon City Mall is also located in this district.
