The Canadian Museum of
Immigration at Pier 21 is located in the national historic site at the Halifax
seaport where nearly one million immigrants landed in Canada from 1928 to
1971. Today, as Canada’s sixth national
museum, we share the ongoing story of immigration to Canada—past to present,
and coast to coast. Our exhibitions immerse visitors in the immigration
experience and allow for a deeper understanding of how newcomers shape our
country. Our staff and collections provide opportunities for visitors to
discover the countless journeys to Canada and find their own family’s
connection to the story.
Countless Journeys. One Canada.
