A band plays as your ship docks in Halifax. You kiss the ground of your new home. Your food is confiscated and you wait. You’re examined by doctors and reviewed immigration officials. Some among you are detained and some quarantined. You buy some strange new food for the long journey ahead. Finally, you board a train that will take you to your new home.
Pier 21 National Historic Site explores the significant spaces and stories from the people who were there.
Use the gallery version of the free Pier 21 National Historic Site app at home to feel what it was like to arrive in a new country, just like one million immigrants who disembarked at Halifax’s Pier 21 did between 1928 and 1971.
