2022-2023 Virtual Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 - Simulation
2022-2023 Virtual Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 – Simulation
In this virtual program, students will be able to engage in real-time with one of our Heritage Interpreters in an interactive role-playing experience that strives to detail immigration to Canada at the start of the 20th Century.

Learners will build a character and answer questions asked by the “Immigration Officer” to try to get into Canada, all while learning about Canada’s exclusionary policies. These policies directly affected the lives of real people, determining who was allowed into the country and how they were treated. It is worth noting that some learners taking part in this program will be the direct descendants of these immigrants. As such, going through the experience will potentially impact different learners in different ways.

Special Note: This learning camp is interactive and relies on audience participation. Please mark this learning camp on your calendars. One week before, the coordinator will email you your child’s designated role for this learning camp. Their participation is integral to the success of this learning camp.
