Francophone Immigration in Canada explores and celebrates francophone newcomers and the vitality of the communities that welcome them. From past to present day, the exhibit includes historical timelines, images and testimonies, as well as an opportunity for visitors to share their own francophone immigration story. This bilingual exhibit was curated by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada in partnership with La Féderation de Communautés Francophones et Acadiennes du Canada to mark Canada 150.
