Canada: Day 1 Travelling Exhibition Opens on February 16, 2015

Canada: Day 1, a travelling exhibition produced by the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 (CMIP), officially opened at Markham Museum’s Winterfest celebrations on Family Day, February 16, 2015. The exhibition can be viewed from January 16 to June 7, 2015 at Markham Museum in Ontario.

Canada: Day 1 explores first steps, first impressions and first experiences of newcomers to Canada, from Confederation to present day. The exhibition explores diverse personal immigration experiences in a thoughtful way through oral histories, archival images, original artworks, objects and your participation. You will be transported back to your first day in Canada, or inspired to imagine yourself in a newcomer’s shoes. 

Lord Cultural Resources has provided planning and design for the Canada: Day 1 travelling exhibition in partnership with Kubik who provided fabrication services
