Canada: Day 1

January 20 - April 15, 2018Canada: Day 1 Travelling Exhibit January 20 - April 15, 2018 - text first steps, first impressions, first experiences

The Simcoe County Museum presents Canada: Day 1 a bilingual exhibition that explores the diverse first experiences and first impressions of immigrants to Canada, from Confederation to present day.

Through oral histories, archival images, original artworks, objects and your participation, Canada: Day 1 thoughtfully explores newcomers' unique and shared personal experiences—across time and cultures. 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.

Join us at our Open House on Saturday, January 27th, from one to 3 p.m. as we welcome Simcoe County residents and visitors to this newest travelling exhibition, presented in the Simcoe Gallery from January 20 to April 15, 2018.

Canada: Day 1 is a travelling exhibition produced by the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 as a legacy project of our nation's 150th anniversary and supported by RBC Foundation.
