Jewish Immigration to Canada

Virtual Field Trip: Jewish Immigration to Canada

Ideal for: Ages 17+ with prior knowledge of Jewish History

Jewish immigrants to Canada have come for many reasons and been a part of the fabric of the country since before Confederation. Many fled oppression and persecution; and while they often faced unfair treatment in Canada, they were also able to build new lives for themselves and their future generations. This 45-minute virtual tour draws on memoirs and oral history interviews in the museum’s collection to tell the story of Jewish immigration to Canada. The tour guide will present Canadian and international events that affected Jewish immigration and its place within the larger narrative of Canada’s immigration story.

This program is intended for older audiences with prior knowledge of Jewish History.
