Learn about the experiences of immigrants as they arrived in Canada, and the vital role of immigration to Canada. The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 was newly renovated in the summer of 2015, and now has two large galleries full of fascinating, interactive activities to help visitors understand the role of immigration as it shapes Canada’s identity.
Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 also has a staffed research centre, where you can drop in and do some genealogical research. Did you have a relative or ancestor who came to Canada as an immigrant? Check their name against the museum’s database of ship’s records.
