Museum highlights the role of immigrants in building Canada
Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, the Halifax-based national museum, brought a little piece of the immigrant experience to Toronto.
Through contemporary first person voices, in Canada shares the personal immigration stories of diverse newcomers to Canada, including those who have settled in Toronto. The debut of this 20-minute film was a significant step in the Museum’s evolution, which will culminate in May 2015 with a grand-reopening and two brand new exhibitions that reflect the national immigration story.
“As a national museum, connecting with Canadians and sharing the immigration story in communities throughout the country is important to us,” said Marie Chapman, CEO of the Canadian Museum of Immigration. “We look forward to continuing the national conversation about the role of immigration in our history and our future.”
The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 collects, shares and pays tribute to the Canadian immigration story.
The Museum is located at the National Historic Site that served as the gateway to Canada for one million immigrants between 1928 and 1971.
