Refuge Canada Exhibit – Members Opening

March 1 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

No one wants to be a refugee. Anyone could become a refugee.

Refugees face shattered lives and often make dangerous voyages in search of refuge. In the 20th century, Canada had a mixed record in welcoming refugees, reacting generously to some while overlooking others. Today, an estimated 65.6 million people are forced to flee their homes because of fear and violence.

In the time it took you to read this, another 20 people were forced from their homes.

Refuge Canada explores Canada’s place in the global refugee crisis. Through images, soundscapes, first-person accounts, and artifacts, this powerful exhibition begins with the phrase, “No one wants to be a refugee; anyone could become a refugee.”

Members are invited to explore this powerful exhibition before it opens to the public on March 2nd.

Notice: Portions of this exhibition contain graphic images of violence.

Refuge Canada is a travelling exhibition created by the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21
