Canada: Day 1 — prepares for the road

The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 is looking to museums and galleries across Canada to be the next host for its first travelling exhibition, Canada: Day 1.

Do you, a family member, or a friend remember your first impressions of Canada? Canada: Day 1 explores the multifaceted experiences of newcomers on their first day of arrival in Canada, spanning from Confederation to present day. Many Canadians can relate to the experience of immigration, resettlement and finding their way in a new place, making this exhibition an ideal fit for many museums and galleries throughout the country.
