Live Virtual Program: Immigration to the West Coast

May 19, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm




Grades 5 & 6 Social Studies

Immigration to BC involved many hardships as well as opportunities. From exploration and first contact, to settlement and global migration, the motivation for trade, prosperity and freedom sparked multiple waves of immigration. These journeys forever changed the lives of individuals, families and communications, and built BC as we know it today. Students will become museum detectives with a suitcase exploration activity, delving into the experiences of immigrants and how immigration has built Canadian society.
