Countless Journeys. One Canada.
THE STORY OF WHO WE WILL BE AS A NATION IS BUILT ON THE CHAPTERS OF YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW.
In Halifax, Nova Scotia there is a place which has an enduring hold on the hearts of many Canadians. It is here, at a former immigration shed, where the lives of many families began in Canada. The halls of the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 echo with the hope, fears and ambitions that immigrants brought with them.
At the Museum, we believe in the transformative power of stories. We preserve and share the stories of those who have helped build Canada. Through research and public education, we invite people from Canada and around the world to better understand the story of our country by walking in the footsteps of the immigrants whose dreams, challenges and sacrifices have brought us to today.
These are the stories of who we have been.
Of how we got here.
Of who we are.
And of who we will become.
The Museum experience leaves an indelible imprint on our visitors each year. Digital programming, genealogy resources, travelling exhibitions, cultural and educational programming, and partner collaborations, help us bring the story to even more people. We aspire to deepen our impact, and to extend our reach. Now more than ever, we understand the pivotal role we play in helping foster understanding and in shaping the Canada we will become. There is so much more of the story yet to be told. We hope you will help.
