New immigration exhibit at the Museum of Vancouver

The phenomenal impact immigration has had on Vancouver is unmistakable.  And now folks from all over the world can share in the celebration of the City’s success.

From October 18, 2012 to January 6, 2013, patrons of the Museum of Vancouver can visit the museum’s new exhibit, Untold Stories: History of Immigrants in Vancouver, where they will learn—through interviews and portraits, and personal stories of immigration—the role that Immigrant Service Society of BC (ISSofBC) has played in supporting newcomers to Vancouver, over the last 40 years.

On Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 6:30 pm, a special free public dialogue—led by a diverse panel of practitioners, researchers, and innovators—will take place at the museum.  This program will foster new insight on how immigration has shaped Vancouver’s evolution through economic, empirical and design perspectives.

To ensure a spot at this special event, guests must RSVP in advance here.
