Canada Day 1
July 26 – December 6, 2015
Travelling exhibit from Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21
Explore First Steps, First Impressions and First Experiences as a Newcomer to Canada
|The immigration experience is marked by firsts. The first day in a new
country takes shape with an individual’s first steps, first impressions and
first experiences. Come explore immigrants’ diverse personal Day 1
experiences, from Confederation to present day. Visit the bilingual
exhibition Canada: Day 1 from July 26 – December 6, 2015 at WDM Saskatoon.
Newcomers’ unique and shared experiences—across time and cultures—are highlighted in a thoughtful way through oral histories, archival images, original artworks, objects and your participation. Explore Day 1 through the themes of Transitions, Arrival, Encounters, Finding Your Way and Reflections. You will be transported back to your first day in Canada, or inspired to imagine yourself in a newcomer’s shoes.
Your Canada: Day 1 experience goes beyond the exhibition. Through community outreach programs and learning opportunities in local schools, Canada: Day 1 is sure to spark ongoing conversations and further reflections on collective Canadian identity.
