About Pier 21

Pier 21Becoming a Canadian National Historic Site in 1996, Pier 21 was a National Museum by 2009. This passenger terminal facilitated immigration from the late 1920s and 1971. People from all over the world and especially from Europe would leave the ocean liners and enter this building to receive their legal immigration papers. The building also had a railroad booking office so that legal immigrants could access points all over Canada. Pier 21 was the main entry point for over a million persons.

Today, the museum takes people through the immigration process and tells many stories of the people who passed through Pier 21. War wives came to Canada to meet their Canadian soldier husbands and poor relations came to join those family members already in the country. Individuals came to make their fortune. A multi-media production and film further explain the immigration process followed by government officials in Pier 21. Photos and personal accounts make the history come alive. Those whose parents or other relations came through the building as well as those who want to learn about this significant part of Canada's history should pay Pier 21 a visit.
