Excerpt

Halifax’s Pier 21 is a place of beginnings. Between 1928 and 1971, almost one million immigrants entered Canada at the site. This includes those who arrived when immigration was restricted during the Great Depression, those who arrived as refugees or displaced persons after the Second World War, and those who arrived in the later years of relative economic prosperity in Canada. These people began new chapters in their lives at Pier 21. As a key ocean transportation hub with good connections inland by rail, Pier 21 also served as a place of departure and return for the vast majority of Canadians serving overseas during the Second World War.
