Why get involved with PCHC-MoM?
The Pacific Canada Heritage Centre will be the only museum of migration on the west coast of the country. In order to learn about the history of our Pacific migrant ancestors, we must travel all the way to Pier 21, where the focus, due to its placement, is upon Atlantic migration. But the stories of Pacific migrants and of our hosts, the First Nations peoples, must also be told.
PCHC-MoM offers a solution. We will gather the stories of Pacific migrants and descendants, bring different people together into a intercultural network, and eventually establish a museum of migration to tell untold stories.
