Wikimedia Hong Kong (WMHK) is the local chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The idea of founding such a chapter originated with local wikimedians as volunteers for Chinese Wikimedia Conference 2006. After the conference, most of volunteers formed a preliminary committee for the chapter. It eventually was founded on 14 July 2007, and was officially registered as a Company Limited by guarantee and not having a share capital, under Chapter 32 Company Ordinance of Hong Kong, on 18 September 2007. It was recognized by the Foundation on 1 March 2008.
