Canada: Day 1

May 18 - September 4, 2017

Come explore our Canada 150 feature exhibit, Canada: Day 1.

The multimedia, interactive Canada: Day 1 exhibit explores the immigration experiences of Canadian newcomers, from Confederation in 1867 to present day.  It details their first day of arrival, what and who they left behind, the people they met along the way, and the challenges they faced and overcame to make Canada their new home.

The exhibit is a mini, travelling version of a larger exhibit at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada produced the exhibits in partnership with the Canadian Museum of Immigration as a legacy project for Canada’s 150th anniversary, supported by Royal Bank of Canada Foundation.

The Canada: Day 1 exhibit at Government House incorporates text, images, artifacts and video to recount new Canadians’ journeys and first experiences in Canada. Visitors can use an iPad to select and play the heartfelt stories of what brought eight Canadian newcomers to the province of Saskatchewan, and how they adjusted to a new way of life.
