Refuge Canada Tent
Temporary exhibit until May 24, 2021
Refuge Canada Tent is a small, bilingual exhibition created by the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 and is supported by TD Bank Group. The exhibit was designed to resemble a tent and is the same size as a typical shelter used in refugee camps today. This introduction to Canada’s place in the global refugee crises will help people understand the experience of refugees and the challenges they face.
