Pier 21 is a National Historic Site which was the gateway to Canada for one million immigrants between 1928 and 1971. It served as the departure point for 500,000 Canadian Military personnel during the Second World War. Today, Pier 21 hosts the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21—Atlantic Canada’s only national museum!

The purpose of the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 is to explore the theme of immigration to Canada in order to enhance public understanding of the experiences of immigrants as they arrived in Canada, of the vital role immigration has played in the building of Canada and of the contributions of immigrants to Canada’s culture, economy and way of life.

The Museum provides space for events, and CRHNet is proud to host its Annual Symposium in such a prestigious and important national space. The Symposium will use several of the large and medium sized rooms in the facility of its various sessions and receptions. The reception is in the Museum so delegates will have free access to the museum.

For further information about the facility, visit its website at:

The Museum and Symposium are very close to the official Symposium accomodation: The Westin Nova Scotian.
