The Canadian Immigration Historical Society (CIHS) was formed in 1986, when seventeen people met and agreed upon the need for a non-partisan organization gathering historians, political scientists, sociologists, academics, government officials and private individuals to develop and promote interest in Canadian immigration and refugee matters and history.
CIHS thanks its corporate members - CIC, P2P and Pier 21 - for their significant support as well as its life and annual members. All these contributions allow us to pursue our objectives and activities.
The achievements of the late Cal Best, a senior executive in the immigration program and Canada’s first federal deputy minister of colour, are the subject of a touring exhibit in Nova Scotia that has been reported on in the Halifax ‘Chronicle Herald’.
The Prime Minister has released his expectations of his Ministers (mandate letters). The letter to the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship can be read here.
