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.
We have posted a revised and more complete chronology of developments leading up to and following the start of the movement of Indochinese refugees to Canada.
‘Canada’s History’ magazine, with CIHS assistance, has just posted an article on the fortieth anniversary of the Indochinese refugee movement to Canada.
With the re-opening of Pier 21, CTV Atlantic conducted nine separate interviews on aspects of the Museum including with CIHS President, Michael Molloy. View the interviews at http://atlantic.ctvnews.ca/museumofimmigration. You may have to use the scroll function at the top right of the screen.
