Sobey Wall of Honour

“Pier 21 is a wonderful monument to Canadian History. Getting my parents a brick was the best gift we ever gave them.” Lydia Steeves

Commemorate a special anniversary or honour a loved one with the gift of a plaque (brick) on the Sobey Wall of Honour. Each brick will be installed on the brick walls of the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21.

Your $450.00 donation gives you:

  • A brick inscribed with the name(s) of your choice.
  • A virtual brick displayed on our Virtual Sobey Wall of Honour.
  • An opportunity to share your or your loved one’s story with your virtual brick.
  • A card, sent by the Museum to the honouree letting them know about your gift.

Commemorative Plaque

Brick donors are eligible to purchase a Commemorative Plaque at a cost of $150 plus applicable tax and shipping. The plaque is a mounted replica, like the one below, to display at home.

A silver plaque with a sample inscription is encased in a clear plaque.

Thanks to The Sobey Foundation’s generous gift, the Museum will be able to grow its virtual wall and expand the onsite Sobey Wall of Honour onto the second level of the Museum, and continue to honour the stories and the legacy of Canadians who came seeking a better future for themselves and their families.
