The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 collects, shares and pays tribute to the Canadian immigration story. Pier 21 is a National Historic Site which was the gateway to Canada for one million immigrants between 1928 and 1971, and the departure point for 500,000 Canadian military personnel during the Second World War.
